Photographer's Note

Don Quixote and Sancho, is a sculptural group that presents us with life-size sculptures of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, protagonists of the literary work "Don Quixote" sitting on a bench.

Since this monument was inaugurated in April 2005, it has gained great popularity and has become one of the iconic photos of Alcal de Henares.

In fact, when you go to visit the Cervantes Birthplace Museum, it will surely cost you to resist not taking a picture with these illustrious figures.

You may even have to wait in line to take the picture.

The Monument to Don Quijote and Sancho is the work of the sculptor Pedro Requejo, from whom in the same year a large sculpture dedicated to Pope John Paul II, two and a half meters high, was also installed in a park in Alcal de Henares.

In short, a curious corner to keep in mind during your walk through this historic town of Madrid.
