Casa-Museo Perez Galdos Tours

Visiting the house where famed author Benito Pérez Galdós was born and lived until 1862 is like taking a journey into his work and times; the Casa-Museo Perez Galdos holds valuable pieces of furniture and various personal belongings—including a private library and never-published drawing and manuscripts—that once belonged to the writer, all of which is cleverly set in the context of Galdós’ 19th-century Spain. The house showcases a few of Galdós’ lesser-known sides, like his political allegiances and artistic affinities for drawing, playing the piano, painting and furniture designing. In addition to being highly significant as far as Galdós’ is concerned, the house is also an extremely well preserved example of 18th-century Canary architecture. And although Benito Pérez Galdós is not by any means a famous author in the English literary world, he played a major role in Canarian and Spanish cultures and his novels are often described as remarkable and influential.
