Rúa Luces de Bohemia s/n 36620 Vilanova de Arousa, Pontevedra
Also known as “Casa do Cuadrante”. The writer was born in this house on October 28, 1866, and spent his first years of life here. It is a large, traditional Galician house, styled like a “pazo” (ancestral home), which used to belong to the Benedictine priory located in Vilanova, in the old Monastery of San Cibrao de Cálogo. After changing hands several times, it was acquired by Valle-Inclán’s family, firstly by his maternal grandparents and then by his uncle and aunt.
In 1994 it was partly destroyed by a large fire, which moved the council to purchase it a year later in order to restore it and prepare it to house the writer’s museum.
Today, the ground floor features an excellent exhibition about his work, including first editions of his publications, periodicals and other documents. The first floor recreates a home of that time, with different objects that belonged to the author on display. The well-maintained exterior gardens are also worth visiting.
The ground floor also services as a tourist information office.
