Candide is set in both real and fictional locations throughout Europe and Latin America in the 1750’s—Lisbon is 100% real and places like El Dorado are 100% fantasy land.
Candide is the illegitimate nephew of a German baron. He grows up in the baron’s castle under the tutelage of the scholar Pangloss, who teaches him that this world is “the best of all possible worlds.” Candide falls in love with the baron’s young daughter, Cunégonde.
