All around modern art awaits for those curious minds wanting to explore contemporary scenes against the backdrop of millennia-old architecture. A must-see destination not easily forgotten!

Amongst this sprawling cityscape of palaces, convents and civil buildings lies 1499’s Cardinal Cisneros’ construction: The world’s first university campus! Walk through charming cobbled streets home to an impressive cathedral – Iglesia Magistral Catedral de los Santos Justo y Pastor – , discover ruins steeped in centuries-old secrets like Santa María Mayor or meander down bustling Calle Mayor for heavenly tapas stops and shops…but don’t forget those iconic porticoes that proudly guard his humble birthplace; Don Quixote himself would have been proud!
