Agenda Cultural

 

 El-madrid-de-Lope

Lope de Vega lived at the district now known as the Barrio de las Letras or Literary Quarter. His neighbours were among the great literary figures of the Spanish Golden Age, such as Miguel de Cervantes, Francisco de Quevedo or Luis de Gongora.

This  quarter still keeps the spirit of that moment. Currently the streets, buildings, booksellers and, actually, this house museum, have help to maintain the magnificence of that age.

The street is named for a sandy area that existed between the Church of San Ginés and the Church of San Martín.
In 1588, Lope de Vega married his first wife, Isabel de Urbina, by proxy in San Ginés de Arlés. The church was demolished in 1642, and the current building was constructed.
