The Commemoration

Welcome to the website of the 4th Centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes of the Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha.

La Mancha, four hundred years later, cannot be understood without the Knight of the Sad Countenance. Similarly, it is difficult to understand the figure of Cervantes without his life-changing stay in this region where he got married and developed a great part of his literary and social activity. He also was imprisoned here and discovered all the human, geographical and cultural elements he would include in the first great modern novel worldwide and of course, the most important literary character of the last four hundred years of universal literature.
