El Puente de Toledo The Bridge of Toledo The Bridge of Toledo unites the banks of the Manzanares River and connects the Pyramid Square with Marques de Vadillo Square. The idea for constructing a bridge in this very spot originated in the 17th Century. It was then that the ruling king Felipe IV decided it would be a good idea if the ever-expanding city of Madrid had a more immediate access to the route leading towards the city of Toledo. The original bridge was constructed in the mid-17th Century. Unfortunately, a flood destroyed it soon after its completion. The entry fee is 13.75 euros.
La Casa de Museo Lope de Vega The Museum of Lope de Vega Lope de Vega was born in Madrid in 1562 and became one of the 17th century's major dramatists, along with Calderón de la Barca. This is the house where he lived from 1610 until his death in 1635. Those 25 years were a troubled period in the writer's adventurous life. He was banished from Madrid for eight years because he wrote insulting poems about Elena Osorio (the daughter of an important theatrical impresario) with whom he had a five-year relationship. She eventually abandoned him for a wealthy lover. The entry fee is 2 euros for adults, and 1 euro for children and seniors over 65.
