Casa de la Torre is a 16th century building. Its name is due to one of the towers of the old fence that surrounded the town of El Toboso (ordered to be built by the Master of the Order of Santiago D. Vasco Rodriguez de Coronado in 1338).
Throughout the centuries the building was a family home, farming and ranching. The family’s house, stables and cellar were located on its grounds.
Isabel Fernández Morales, the heart and soul of Casa de la Torre, found here the place to give life to a dream cradled for years.
Since 1995, after a major renovation that transformed the historic Casa de la Torre into an Inn / Museum full of charm and comfort, Isabel has received crowds of curious and restless travelers, who cross La Mancha encouraged to look for the footsteps of D. Quixote for this land full of history and culture, or to take steps in time through the tradition that is breathed and lived in this place.
The gastronomy served is made with the most significant La Mancha products, some of them cited by Cervantes and others discovered and faithfully interpreted by Isabel, who on her travels through the region has been collecting from the La Mancha grandmothers and then testing them herself. Furthermore, Isabel enjoys giving the dishes names like ‘pisto lagunero’ (tomato and vegetable dish), ‘pinizcos de la Tolosa’ (cream pastry), ‘bacalao del Caballero’ (cod with tomato and potatoes), ‘mojete de la Molinera’ (tuna, garlic , tomato, pepper, egg, and olive oil dipping dish), ‘stuffed pigeon’ ”.

Chamber of Books
It caused us great sorrow that Don Quixote’s chivalric book had the end… «We got in touch with the wise man Freston and asked him to give us back the room with the books that he had stolen from the “manchego hidalgo”.»
A document from Casa de la Torre dated 1850 speaks of the library of the priest D. Isidoro Arias decorated with Renaissance furniture. We have been able to recover original elements from those times to return them to their space.
