This museum features a broad range of pieces of art (mostly paintings and ceramics) inspired by the Cervantes's story of Don Quixote. The quality of the works is outstanding, even surprising. It is not have all that much info about Cervantes himself.

I was somewhat disappointed by this museum featuring various interpretations of Don Quixote and his story. The sheer number of homages was impressive. The museum's janitors were wet mopping rather than dry mopping the wooden floors with a solution that irritated my eyes. They were...More
