When Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra died in 1616, his body was interred at the Convento de las Trinitarias , which is marked by a plaque. Still home to cloistered nuns, the convent is closed to the public, which saves the authorities’ embarrassment: no one really knows where in the convent the bones of Cervantes lie. A commemorative Mass is held for him here every year on the anniversary of his death, 23 April.
