Miguel de Unamuno’s house in Fuerteventura

Anyone with an interest in history visiting Fuerteventura should make sure they take a trip to the former house of Miguel de Unamuno.

De Unamuno was a writer, philosopher and rector of the University of Salamanca who was exiled from the Spanish mainland for speaking out against the political situation of the time.

He arrived in Fuerteventura in March 1924 and set up his home in this 19th century former hotel, located in Puerto del Rosario.

It was only a decade later that the Spanish monarchy fell and the country eventually came under the control of General Franco.

De Unamuno’s home is now a museum and is set up to mirror the style that it was in when de Unamuno lived there in the 1920s.

Large amounts of furniture from the period, along with photographs of important people that influence the man are also on display in the museum, which is open Monday to Friday from 09:00 until 14:00.
