We will visit the Plaza de San Pablo, one of the best known squares in Valladolid. Its name is from the church of San Pablo, it is believed that its construction was between the years 1445 and 1468.<br>Then we will go to Ribera del Duro, when we arrive we will visit Curiel Castle which stands on a rocky hill, at the highest point in the province of Valladolid, which watches over the Douro Valley and, at the foot of the hill, the town that gives its name to the castle. The castle stands on a hill next to the Horcajo stream, which discharges into the Douro. We will finish the tour with a visit to the Protos Winery, carried out by Rogers Stirk Harbor + Partners, it is an industrial project where the winemaking process is seen, from the grape harvest to the bottling of the wines. Most of the internal space of the winery is underground, here the thermal mass of the soil is used to keep the wine fresh.

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

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.

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.

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 .

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.
