Museo Casa Natal de Cervantes

Museo Casa Natal de Cervantes
Alcalá de Henares, Spain

Cervantes´s Birthplace Museum is located in the main street of the historic city of Alcalá de Henares. Miguel de Cervantes was born in 1547, and that building belonged to the Cervantes´s family in the 16th century. It is a two-storey building with interior courtyard. First opened to the public in 1956 as a house museum, the building has undergone numerous renovations and transformations always preserving original parts. In this house, the everyday life of a wealthy Spanish family in the 16th and 17th centuries is recreated in detail.
In the museum we can see, in a visual and scenographic way, customs, tastes and daily chores of its inhabitants. It also has an important bibliographic collection of Cervantine Editions of all epochs and in all languages.
