  • After reading any publication the existence of this House Museum I decided to visit it with my daughter. I booked via e-mail tour some days in advance, and there was no problem. The visit in itself is very interesting, very well explained and with interaction between the passenger and the public, especially if there are children. It is an immersion in the daily life of that time both the life of this illustrious author. I recommend a visit without hesitation. Yes I missed missing a shop to buy souvenirs, but things small as pencils, keychains, t-shirts are... as in other houses Museum or tourist sites.

  • This is a very nice way to see how were the Spanish houses of the wealthy during the 16th century. The entrance is free but only with guided tours in Spanish and English.
  • 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.
