Juan M. Gonzalez
This week's Take Us Along winner is Juan M. Gonzalez of Madisonville, Ky. He took Kentucky Auto & RV along on a trip to Alcala de Henares in Spain and is shown in the main plaza in the hometown of Cervantes, writer of "El Quixote", the second most read book in history, with a copy of Kentucky Auto & RV.
Alcala de Henares is a Spanish city located 11 miles northeast of Madrid. Its city center is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. The city was one of the first bishoprics founded in Spain and dates back to the Bronze Age. Romans conquered it during the first century BC.
As noted above, Miguel de Cervantes was born in Alcala de Henares and was baptized in the Church of Santa Maria in 1547. Even though the family moved from the city when he was young, his birthday is celebrated each October and a festival carries his name.
Thanks for taking us along!
