Description:

Next to El Parque de las Palomas you will find this museum*, La Casa del Libro or House of Books, which boasts a collection of precious manuscripts produced prior to the 16th century, known as incunabula. This collection includes two official documents signed in 1493 by King Ferdinand ‘the Catholic’ and Queen Isabella II of Spain. The museum accommodates over 300 books published in the 15th century and also a valued edition of Don Quixote published in Valencia, Spain in 1605 – the first year that Cervantes’s masterpiece was released in Madrid.

* The museum is currently closed for renovations and is scheduled to open its doors again in 2010. Part of the collection is currently on exhibit at the Museo de las Americas in the Cuartel de Ballajá, Old San Juan.
