AWESOME FOR CERVANTES/QUIJOTE LOVERS
Jan 2019 • Couples
This is in a little town in Castilla/La Mancha that is full of history. This is the actual cave/prison that housed Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quijote. I am a Cervantes and Quijote lover, and I went away in total awe. The town is replete with things relating to Cervantes. For me, memorable.

Interesting place
Oct 2016 • Couples
There’s not much to see in Casa-Cueva Medrano, except for the cave/basement where Cervantes was purportedly imprisoned and where he started writing his famous novel Don Quijote de la Mancha. The lady at the Tourist Office desk explained to us two different versions of why Cervantes was imprisoned and other interesting details about Cervantes’ possible reasons for writing El Quijote. This was the last of the four locations we had to visit to do our “El Quijote” tour, the other ones being: the windmills in Campo de Criptana; the windmills in Alcazar de San Juan; and the Museo Cervantino in El Toboso. There is a little “passport” that you can get at the Tourism Office of either location; and if you get it stamped at each of the above locations, at the end of the tour they will issue you a “Knight Errant” certificate if you are a man or a “Dame Dulcinea” Certificate if you are a woman (a fun memory from your trip to La Mancha).
