Casa-Museo de Menéndez Pelayo


The family home of celebrated local scholar Marcelino Menéndez Pelayo (1856–1912) stands directly behind the elaborate Biblioteca de Menéndez Pelayo, which is crammed full of books he donated to the city. Explore the house to see Menéndez Pelayo’s office, the bedroom where he died and the kitchen that he legendarily almost let burn down by being too distracted reading.
