District of Letters, Madrid

Madrid’s District of Letters, (Barrio de las Letras) was home to some of the luminaries of Spainish literature, including Cervantes and Lope de Vega. Their houses are marked with brief biographies and quotations from their work laid into the pavement outside.  Most walking tours of Madrid will lead you through this neighbourhood.
