529 Preziosa is a minor planet orbiting the Sun that was discovered by German astronomer Max Wolf on March 20, 1904 from Heidelberg.

This is a member of the dynamic Eos family of asteroids that were probably formed as the result of a collisional breakup of a parent body.[2]

The name is that of the protagonist of one of Miguel de Cervantes' Exemplary Novels.
