The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza as a Mirror of Don Quixote is a tour designed to provide a number of windows on the world created by Miguel de Cervantes in his famous novel. Through a selection of works from the Permanent Collection, visitors are given an insight into the most salient episodes of the ingenious knight’s adventures and the boundless imagination that leads him to see giants where there are only windmills, the idealised beauty of Dulcinea and Sancho Panza’s loyalty and good judgement. There is no direct link between the paintings and the passages of the novel, but many of the literary motifs found in the novel can be reinterpreted through the history of these paintings. This tour has been made possible by the collaboration of the council of Alcalá de Henares.
