  • Very interesting guided tour. Totally recommendable. Small group and guide makes the view memorable. The atmosphere of the house very well achieved.

  • It is a house of the seventeenth century, in which lived Lope de Vega, the time that lived in Madrid. It is located in the Barrio de Las Letras. The house is as it was at the time the writer lived. You visit the whole house: the garden, the bedrooms, the dining room, the chapel. In it we find all the furniture and objects of the writer. The visit is free and can only be done with a guide, you can not do it on your own. You also have to pre-book, which takes away your chances of visiting. We went on a Thursday morning and we hadn't booked, and they let us join a visit there was, the downside is that the visit at that time was in French. It's interesting.
