Casa Museo Unamuno

Museum in Puerto del Rosario

This small museum honours the philosopher Miguel de Unamuno, who stayed here in 1924 after being exiled from Spain. His crime was criticising the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, both verbally and in writing. He later escaped to France before returning to his position as lecturer and rector at Salamanca University in Spain when the Republicans came to power in 1931.

The ground-floor house has been turned into a period piece, with four rooms furnished from Unamuno’s day, including the bedroom (complete with chamber pot) and his study with original desk. There are brochures available in English.
