Cervantes Routes 2023 – Route of the Spanish queens

Westminster Abbey, officially the Collegiate Church of St. Peter in Westminster, is the place where monarchs are crowned, where a large number of them are buried and as a mausoleum in which the nation’s illustrious personages are buried and commemorated.

Since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, all monarchs (with the exception of two) have followed this tradition. Some of the monarchs of Spanish blood have not only been crowned but are also buried in this place that occupies a unique position in the history of the United Kingdom.

The interior of the abbey and a walk around it will remind us of the historical links between the kingdom of Castile, the kingdom of Spain and the kingdom of England.

The Instituto Cervantes London continues its programme of guided tours which, under the generic name of “Cervantes Routes”, invites you to explore the geography of the British capital discovering the traces of the presence of the arts, culture, literature and history of Spain and Latin America through its key figures and personalities of all times, prepared and carried out by Milagros Dapena-Collopy (“Qualified Blue Badge London Tourist Guide”)

Throughout 2023 we will develop a catalogue of itineraries, which will take place on Saturday mornings, dealing with the memory of the Spanish and Latin American exile, the historical relations between the British and Spanish monarchies and some of the masterpieces of Spanish art in the National Gallery, among other novelties that we will announce in due course.
