Museo Cervantino

Museum in El Toboso

This museum of over 300 books all with the same title (you’ve guessed it – Don Quijote) is more interesting than it sounds. Included among its well laid-out exhibits are copies of the Cervantes classic in braille and multiple languages, including Basque. There are also signed copies by notable personalities; look out for Nelson Mandela and – more chillingly – Adolf Hitler.

In an upstairs room, two short films (with English subtitles) relate the story of Don Quijote and how it relates to the La Mancha landscape.
