Calle de Cervantes 2 information
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547–1616), the author of Don Quijote , spent much of his adult life in Madrid and lived and died at Calle de Cervantes 2 ; a plaque (dating from 1834) sits above the door. Sadly, the original building was torn down in the early 19th century. When Cervantes died his body was interred around the corner at the Convento de las Trinitarias .
