Casa Museo de Unamuno
This house was built in 1758 and it was the residence of Salamanca University's rectors. Here Miguel de Unamuno, the famous writer and philosopher from the Basque Country, lived from 1900 until 1914. Unamuno worked first as a professor of Greek and later as university rector. He was one of the most remarkable of modern Spanish thinkers. In this museum, you can visit the office and library containing more than 6000 books and manuscripts belonging to him. There is a 20min guided tour available. Moreover, researchers who want to study Unamuno's works and life will find that there are facilities available for this endeavor.
There is nothing to dislike about the Casa Museo Unamuno. A vibrant staff, presently headed by the energetic Ana Chaguaceda Toledano, heads this museum. They all make the visitor feel at home and eager to tour the official residence of Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936), one of contemporary Spain's greatest thinkers and poets. Scholars find invaluable primary and second source material there, ably administered by the staff. Tourists to Salamanca should make the museum a must!
