2016: Homage to Cervantes on the 400th Anniversary of his Death

-

TOURSPAIN

2016 is a year associated with a name: Miguel de Cervantes, one of the most famous writers of all time, known above all as the author of a novel that everyone has heard of: Don Quixote. And why is 2016 associated with this author? Because it is the 400th Anniversary of his death, after the 400th Anniversary of the publication of the second part of Don Quixote being celebrated in 2015. In other words, 400 years later, Cervantes, the Prince of Wits, is more fashionable than ever.

Beyond Don Quixote,  Cervantes, as well as a soldier, was a wide-ranging novelist, poet and playwright, writing about universal themes we can all identify with: love, family, education, religion… To understand the man and his work, we recommend attending some of the activities which will take place over 2016. Various institutions are participating in the programme: Acción Cultural, the National Library of Spain, the Cervantes Institute… To help you decide, we’re presenting activities by subject area (exhibitions, film, music, family, etc.), summarising them below.
