Unamuno House Museum

Where the Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno stayed during his exile during the Primo de Rivera dictatorship

Unamuno House Museum is in Puerto del Rosario, in the centre of Fuerteventura.

The name of the museum is quite eloquent. In the past, the house was a guesthouse known as the Hotel Fuerteventura, where the Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno stayed during his exile during the Primo de Rivera dictatorship. Today, the house serves as a museum that narrates, as a witness from another era, the life of the writer on the island.

The house was built in the 19th century, but its layout and decoration are more in an early 20th-century style. To be specific, the house is right in the centre of Puerto del Rosario.

The writer toured the island, and as his writings state, he soaked up its culture and customs, fell in love with its mountains and climate, and enjoyed its gastronomy. Today, this House-Museum tries to bring you closer to the writer’s modus vivendi in Fuerteventura in 1924 and to exhibit some of the texts that Unamuno dedicated to the island.
