Cervantes Universe Interpretation Centre, Alcala de Henares, Madrid, Spain

The Cervantes Universe Interpretation Centre is located in one of the most symbolic places of the city around the figure of Miguel de Cervantes: the chapels of Oidor and Antezana in Alcala de Henares, Madrid. These chapels are part of the temple where the author of Don Quixote was baptized, the parish church of Santa Maria Mayor, which unfortunately disappeared. It was a baroque church of the fifteenth century. In the interior, among other objects we can see the baptismal font and a reproduction of the baptismal certificate of Cervantes, dated October 9th, 1547. Throughout the year, special exhibitions are offered there.


Monday is closed. Schedules of the center are from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30 to 13:30 and from 17:00 to 20:00.
