The famous Spanish poet Lope de Vega lived here for several years. It is free of charge to visit the museum and there are English speaking tourguides who tell you about the house and environment.

A small museum in the very heart of Madrid. You can feel the old way of life, sharing the lifestyleo of Lope de Vega. The small garden in the back is a real oasis.

In just one short hour, the visitor leaves with an understanding of the place of Lope de Vega in Spanish literature and in its history as well as gender, government and community norms at the time. Well worth the trip.More
