You set out to find the man who created you all -the famous Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes- to get some answers, so you can be reunited with them once again.
Be wary of who you may meet along the way, for in the mind of a crazed dreamer, sometimes things aren’t always as they seem…

We enjoyed the quest, especially that we got to know some insights about the local Spanish poets and writers and the challanges were interesting :) Nice route! The last number from the challange with the numbers above the old wooden entrance is impossible to get without asking for a hint. The symbol from the last challange is missing.
