Take a walk in Lope de Vega's footsteps to see what influenced and inspired his work at Casa Museo Lope de Vega, the author's former home and now a museum dedicated to the "golden age" writer. Opened as a museum in 1935, it was declared a national monument that same year. Run by the Real Academia Espanola, the house features a number of rooms, including a dining room, chapel, kitchen, the writer's bedroom, and his study, among others. Visit the museum to see where Lope de Vega spent 25 years of his life and wrote some of his most well-known works. To access the museum, you must book a guided tour, which is conducted in English, French, or Spanish.

  • This museum is free, but only viewable by pre-booked tours which are run in various langauges. Easy to email them using the link from their website, but sadly the next English tour wasn't for 2 weeks ...  more »
  • I visited on the spur of the moment only to discover that I needed to pre-book at least 10 days in advance. The delightful garden was the only place to visit as the house is very small and full with S...  more »

  • Very informative, but you have to reserve a spot in advance.
  • Even if unkown for many people, Félix Lope the Vega was one of the greatest geniouses of the Spanish Literature, together with Cervantes. This house was his last home and is one of Madrid's treasures, since is one of the few places from the XVIth still preserved in the city. Ever after going under a deep restoration, you can still see how a "good house" was in the Madrid of the Hapsburgs. And it's free! The only "but" it can only be seen with a guided tour that you must book in advance, since only 12 people are allowed to visit it at a time and the groups fill up quickly. If not, you can always see the nice and romantic orchard, recreated exactly as it was at the times of Lope.
  • FREE Entry, reservation necessary.
  • For all writers and poet lovers!

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
