Delve into the life of famous writer José Saramago, Nobel Prize for Literature, on this visit to the home where he spent the last years of his life. An essential guided tour for followers of this great author.

Casa José Saramago Tour

At the time of your choice, we'll meet at the A Casa José Saramago museum, located in the municipality of Tías in Lanzarote.

During the guided tour, you'll visit the different rooms of this home where the Portuguese author spent most of the last 18 years of his life. "A house made of books" is how the writer himself defined the home. Ready to explore?

Passing through the study, you'll see photographs of family members, authors admired by the novelist and the Nobel Prize for Literature award itself. You'll also get to see the bedroom where the writer passed in 2010, the living room, the kitchen as well as the garden. Boasting incredible views of the sea and the surrounding volcanic terrain, it'll come as no surprise that the author particularly enjoyed resting and reading in this garden!

We'll also discuss some of the artwork that adorns the author's walls, including works by César Manrique, Pepe Dámaso, Manolo Millares, Gao Xingjian, Oscar Niemeyer, Antoni Tàpies, among many others.

Without a doubt, one of the most special moments will be the visit to the famous library, where Saramago wrote his last two novels: The Elephant's Journey and Cain. The atmosphere is truly magical!

After a one-hour visit to the home of this famous late writer, the tour will come to an end.
