Loved the history

This is one of his family homes and it has furniture that he designed, small paintings that he painted and information about his books and life. For me a magical place.

The bad news is that now you have to pay for the ticket. 3 EUR (or 1,5 EUR for groups of 7 and more). The good news is all the rest: the beautiful house, the impressive furniture, the sympathy of the staff, the very detailed information about less known details of Pérez Galdós' life and personality (for instance, that he...

In a quiet corner of Triana is the birthplace of Galdos, the best known Canarian author and playwright. A short walk away is the theatre bearing his name. We've tried to find English translations of his work, so far without success. Remarkable that we know so little about a remarkable man, but the house is beautifully maintained as his memorial,...

Galdós was a realist writer of the XIX c who was born in Las Palmas, Even if you don¡t know much about it, the house is an extraordinary sample of the architecture and furniture of his age. I ignore if the guides do English tours, but the tours I've taken in Spanish are really good.
