The miniature, location and message.





This stone is for the Huerto de Calixto y Melibea, in Salamanca:

“The miniature was painted after the image of a matchmaker, found in this park. The name of this park refers to the tragic love story of Calisto and Melibea, known as the Spanish Romeo and Julliet.
Their story is described in: La Celestina, a book by Fernando de Rojas. Calisto works for Melibea’s father and is in love with his daughter. He asks Celestina to intercede for him. She agrees and arranges for the couple to meet in the garden. But everything goes wrong and Celestina, the matchmaker, is murdered.
The desperate Spanish Romeo then tries to reach his lover’s window via a ladder, falls and dies. Melibea does not want to go on living without him and jumps from the tower.
The story is one of the most famous works of Spanish literature.”

This stone started travelling on 2021-11-18.
