Madrid and Castile

Alcalá de Henares & Cuenca

Discover Cervantes´birthplace through these two magical cities and their special flavours.

  • TOUR

    Immerse yourself for two days in the origins and inspirations of Miguel de Cervantes and you will not be left you indifferent. We find two magical cities declared UNESCO World Heritage Cities just a few kilometers away from Spain´s capital, Madrid: Alcalá de Henares, the birth place of Cervantes, the legendary Spanish author and Cuenca, capital of the province where he observed La Mancha´s customs and traditions, which he then went on to describe marvelously in most of his works.

    Join the Alcalá de Henares Walking tour and you will connect with its illustrious past thanks to a remarkable variety of monuments, such as one of oldest documented European Theaters, The Cervantes Birth House-Museum and his Baptismal Font, as well as the University of Alcalá where some of the great figures of Spanish culture studied, such as Lope de Vega or Quevedo.

    La Mancha will welcome you with its vineyards and cheeses, and here you will be able to enjoy its flavours, in private “catas”(taste sessions), relax and enjoy a wonderful sunset in one of kind accommodation located in the historic walled town of Cuenca, a city that offers Spain’s first Gothic cathedral and its famous Casas Colgadas (hanging houses), suspended from sheer cliffs overlooking the Huécar River.
    This is the only region where Manchego cheese is made and you will understand why nearly one thousand tons of it are exported each year.

    For travelers who want to enjoy all the comforts of an all-inclusive tour which includes services of the highest quality.
