The Spirit of Don Quijote is Alive & Well

  — VIEW SAMPLE ITINERARY
 

Welcome to Castilla and La Mancha, the stomping grounds of Don Quijote and Sancho Panza, Spain’s celebrated literature characters. Your travels will take you off the beaten path to historic towns few tourists ever get to see. The very same settings Miguel de Cervantes chose for his great masterpiece back in 1605. Ironically he died a day before his contemporary, William Shakespeare, on April 22, 1616.

Your tour will take you to Alcala de Henares, birthplace of Cervantes and home to one of Europe’s oldest Universities. Then it’s on to the spectacular hanging city of Cuenca, once the holiday residence of Royalty, today home to a large artist colony.

Next stop Aranjuez. You’ll find out why it’s favored as a summer residence by Royalty from the 16th century to the present day. From there you’ll visit Medieval Chinchon, with its famed picturesque 15th century Plaza and Castle on the Hill. Your last stop will be medieval Toledo. Then end your trip where it began, in majestic Madrid.
