In the middle of the 19th century, in Alcala there was a belief, without historical basis but very widespread among the main estates of the city, that the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes was in a part of the orchard of the Convent of the Capuchins -which today houses a large restaurant-, on the corner of Santiago Street with the current Cervantes Street, which was then called de la Tahona. The convent and its orchard, after the confiscation of Mendizábal, was bought by a private individual.
In 1846, its owner ordered a plaster bust of Miguel de Cervantes and two commemorative tombstones to be placed there, and got the city council to change the name of the street from Tahona to Cervantes, a name that has survived to the present day.
The Teatro Salón Cervantes was built in only 29 days, a true landmark of speed in the field of architecture. Its façade is modernist in style, with very simple brickwork. It was inaugurated in the spring of 1888.
The belief that the Teatro Salón Cervantes stood on the site of Cervantes’ family home still persisted in 1905, when the 3rd Centenary of Don Quixote was celebrated, and that is why a new plaque was placed at that time -the previous one had disappeared- remembering the «illustrious son of Alcalá». It should be remembered that it was not until 1953 when the Cervantista Luis Astrana Marín discovered the evidence that Cervantes’ house was where it is now located.
