400th ANNIVERSARY OF CERVANTES'S DEATH

400th ANNIVERSARY OF CERVANTES'S DEATH

And why is 2016 associated with Cervantes? Because it is the 400th Anniversary of his death. Beyond Don Quixote, Cervantes, as well as a soldier, was a wide-ranging novelist, poet and playwright, writing about universal themes we can all identify with: love, family, education, religion... To understand the man and his work, we recommend attending some of the activities which will take place over 2016. Various institutions are participating in the programme: Acción Cultural, the National Library of Spain, the Cervantes Institute… To help you decide, we're presenting activities by subject area (exhibitions, film, music, family, etc.), summarising them below.
