The Don Quixote tapestry at Palacio Real (Royal Palace) is pretty impressive. These series of tapestries were commissioned by King Philip V. I think there were around 15 huge tapestries that were hanged on the halls of the eastern side of the palace. Each tapestry depicts a scene from Spain’s beloved story of Don Quixote of La Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes, the country’s equivalent of Shakespeare.
When visiting the Royal Palace, don’t miss these tapestries – especially if you’re familiar with the story. Since they are in the cavernous halls of the palace, visitors are allowed to take photos but the guards are watching you not to be too close with those tapestries – they’re national treasures.
The photos below are from my iPhone. Enjoy.
