Opposite the Trinitarias convent, on the corner with the street Calle Lope de Vega, is the house that once belonged to Quevedo. This is remembered by a large plaque on the façade which does not take into account that the house was previously the home that Góngora purchased with such a great effort when he settled in Madrid.
This was the first house acquired by Francisco de Quevedo in 1620 in calle del Niño, now called calle Quevedo, in the neighbourhood populated by writers. It is a busy and lively neighbourhood, full of taverns which the literate frequented. A splendid plaque commemorates not only Gongora.
We find here two men who were complete opposites. Quevedo had a great personality, he was a regular visitor to brothels and the marginal venues of the era, and greatly loved for being a man who was close to the people. Góngora, on the other hand, generated antipathy in the people around him.
