4. Nearby 1963 Cervantes Festival marker
Near the featured marker are many additional markers related to the different Cervantes Festivals that have been held at this plaza over the years. This marker celebrated some of the earlier "entremeses" (portions) festivals celebrating the works of Cervantes and others. This marker is from 1963 and notes that it was the 10th anniversary of the "entremeses". Ruelas Espinosa was able to build on this tradition.
