It’s no exaggeration to say that Don Quixote de la Mancha is one of the most famous books in the history of literature. This novel, which tells the adventures and especially the misfortunes of a man who wanted to be a knight-errant in the land of La Mancha, was written by Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century, and is among the world’s most translated tales. That period in Spanish literature is known as the Golden Age, and 400 years on we suggest following in the footsteps of the "Knight of the Sad Countenance", who could not distinguish fantasy from reality.
Get ready, because you'll have to fight giants that are actually windmills, try to win Dulcinea's heart, and taste dishes like "duelos y quebrantos" (scrambled eggs with chorizo). Because it's not just a literary route – it's a journey through some of the most magical landscapes in Spain. But it's up to you to create that story. You choose the main characters and the length.

You're reading while being served a coffee or a delicious dinner, listening to a piano play in the background, and then suddenly you look out of the window of a historic carriage and see the sun set on the horizon, and everything seems perfect. This scene, or something similar, is what you can expect to experience on several tourist trains around Spain, and these trains mean the journey is as exciting as the destination. You can go on luxury week-long journeys that hark back to the long railway journeys of the past and day trips that are brought to life by actors. Traveling by train is one of the greatest pleasures a traveler can experience, especially if it comes with a buffet breakfast, product tastings, exclusive tours, and so on.
