Located in the "literary quarter" of Madrid, The Convento de las Trinitarias is best known as the burial place of Miguel de Cervantes, the author of the famous Don Quixote. Unfortunately the body of Cervantes can no longer be found, and the convent grounds are only open to the public on special occasions. The daughters of Cervantes and Lope de Vega both took the veil here. Besides its relevance to literature, the convent, dating from 1673, is also a good example of 17th-century Madrid architecture.
