Home Life & History in Spain
Oct 2019
For a minimal cost you have both a history of the author and Spanish home life.
Somewhat formal self guided tour (staff are very watchful and suspicious of any movement close to any object) but very interesting and well worth an hour of your time

Interesting visit
Sep 2019 • Couples
Very interesting to see this old house which, for a short time, was the home of Cervantes. You can see rooms furnished as they may have been in his lifetime, and a vast library. A good amount of background information provided in Spanish and English - both helpful and at times amusing. Surprisingly there is no shop. One might have expected at copies of Don Quixote in many languages, postcards, etc. - but nothing. Definitely missing a trick here.

Enchanting Museum!
Jun 2019 • Solo
This is the house of Miguel de Cervantes, the most important Spanish writer. Cervantes lived in this house in 1604, when he moved to Valladolid with his family.
The two courtyards are very nice, I love the statues dedicated to Mr. Archer Huntington, an American intellectual who founded the Hispanic Society of America in NYC.
The house has an amazing library, different rooms, and a picturesque kitchen. I also love the Battle of Lepanto painting.

Travelling back in time -a peaceful courtyard and a little museum
May 2018 • Friends
I enjoy visiting writers'houses ,for me it is great to dream and to feel the man who lived here ,while writing his books .Miguel de Cervantes lived in this house in Valldolid when the first edition of Don Quixote was published .He stayed here between 1604-1606 in a modest building .In 1948 the house was converted into a museum ,the principal patron was Marquis of Vega Inclan who saved the building .I entered the hall where I could see the paintng The Battle of Lepanto ,hung on the wall ,reminding me that Cervantes fought in a battle and lost the mobility of his left arm .I passed through the estrado (reception room ) covered with rugs ,a very decorated room ,a special place reserved for women .I felt the scent of old times in the library ,in the bedroom ,in the kitchen and in the so called dining room .Iliked the courtyard ,little and peaceful .I visited the house on a Sunday ,admission was free .

A great Courtyard building and small garden in the nest
Apr 2018 • Friends
The building is used a a university area. the courtyard looks like it has been renovated and looks good. There is a small museum in the building and the exposition changes all the time. The next building has a small garden. Don't expect too much, worth browsing through.

Small but really nice museum
Feb 2018 • Solo
I had a really good time visiting this small but nice museum. The staff is really kind and smiling. In particular, I would like to thank Angel that gave me a special "guided" tour inside Cervantes'house, he shared with me much info and answered all my questions. I really appreciated the house reconstruction that was really specific in each detail!

Delightful historic reconstruction
Oct 2017 • Solo
The house is a museum laid out as it might have been at the time Cervantes was living there. Living rooms, bedroom, and kitchen and more. Lovely small courtyard garden which is peaceful in spite of being on a main thoroughfare

Nice but too refurbished
Nov 2016 • Friends
Nice stop in town to meet the story of one of the best Spanish writer's. However, I was a bit disappointed to see that the house has been refurbished and redecorate many times so even trying to keep the original essence, it feels a bit fake sometimes. The tour was lovely, good explanations about his life and novels.

Disappointed
May 2017 • Friends
A bit disappointing. Very small with few original objects. Cervantes should have lived here with 12 family members. However since then the house underwent various changes.
