This was visited only because my fellow traveler insisted, it was wonderful, now I need to read Cervantes.

Paintings, sketches, statues by the world's famous artists of their views and visions of this fictional Cervantes character. On three floors and well spaced galleries, images of "The Man of La Mancha" are wonderfully portrayed. Spend an hour or two - it's a real delight.

Don Quixote was not real. Yet there are all sorts of pictures, sculptures and crystal statues of the guy. It was quite interesting to see and well worth the time I spent there,

Ok, so it isn't the most exciting of attractions, but having read Don Quixote recently and having my own impressions of what he would look like I found it really interesting to see other opinions on the subject.

In June 2009 we visited the Don Quixote Iconographic Museum in Guanajuato, the capital of the Mexican state of Guanajuato. Works of sculpture, painting, drawing and even metal work represent characters and events from the Spanish classic novel. Works are both serious and humorous. This...More
