In the center of Madrid, specially Barrio de Las Letras, they sabe the memory of a lot of episodes of Lope de Vega’s life and other writers in Siglo de Oro

Open to public, the house-museum of Lope de Vega (cervantes’s Street nº11), where the famouse writer lived 25 years until his death in 1635. It was where he wrote some of his most famous books, and it was the place where he suffered a lot of his biggest looses. In that house is where his son died when he was only seven years old. It was also the house where Juana died, his wife, who died when Feliciana, the last daughter of the writer was born. In that house Marta de Nevares died insane and blind, the love of his life.
