Now we loved this, but I guess many of you wouldn't bother to go, because you have no idea who Antonio Machado was, and why they should make a museum out of the boarding house where he lived for a decade. Even if you have no idea, it's worth visiting. Well, he was one of the most famous of Spanish poets, a poet and a teacher of French, who had a sad life (his young wife Leonor whom he had married when she was just 15 or 16, died of TB aged 18), and was later forced to flee to France during the Spanish Civil War, going to join his elderly mother who was living in the enchantingly pretty town of Collioure, just over the border. But within a month he died, and his mother died just 3 days later. But the house has been restored, furnishing, decorations, kitchen and all, to the condition in which it was when he lived there in the 20's, and that alone is a good curiosity that warrants the €2.50 entrance fee. We used the audioguide, but in Spanish as we are Spanish speakers, sorry, I don't know if there is an English one available, and it gave really fascinating information, so we spent nearly two hours in that tiny house, examining carefully just about everything there!

This museum is touching because of all the photos of the poet Antonio Machado, his family, and friends, as well as the rooms he lived in, including kitchen and bedroom. There are also some letters and writings of Machado. Ther museum is also quite touching because it conveys how Machado lived. I think the museum is well worth seeing.

The entrance to this house-museum is not very obvious other than a sign. Entrance ticket is 2.50 euro with audio headset. Flash photography allowed but not video. This house-museum is well preserved in its original state, hence simple and unassuming. The audio guide is useful to give a glimpse of the life of Antonio Machado. One can view the many rooms with its exhibits - furniture, bed, desk, household stuff, photos, articles etc. There were only a few visitors when I was there. A good thing as the rooms are small. Worth a visit if time permits.

While many palaces are places where people lived, they rarely give the feeling of intruding on the intimacy of its inhabitants that a regular house does. It is moving to walk around in the sober house where the poet and writer Machado lived, and see the objects by which he was surrounded.
