Our tour guide was really nice and spoke English well (tall gentlemen with dark hair) and showed us every bit of the museum. Really interesting if you're into history and film.

We had planned to visit the Centre in an hour and a half; a big mistake and we had to come back again in the afternoon. At the start there’s a short 30 minute guided tour as an introduction to the Centre. We were lucky to have José Miguel Asensio, responsible for cultural affairs at the Calanda Town Hall, as our guide. His fascinating introduction and patient answering of questions lasted almost an hour! José Miguel also guides in French, but for English there’s a written guide. On the ground floor there’s a exhibition area where they hold 3-5 temporary exhibitions a year. The present one is by Dutch artist Jan Van Eden whose original cinema-inspired paintings often look like photos from a distance and are as surreal as Buñuel himself. Upstairs the permanent exhibition is divided into 4 areas: bibliography (with books & photos); the world of Buñuel; his film history and a small cinema with 42 seats and an exhibition of cinema posters in various languages. It´s interactive, audio-visual as you would expect, full of surprises and fascinating because of the influence of his childhood in Calanda on everything he did. As José Miguel says, “you need to know Buñuel before seeing his films”. It’s an imaginative and creative interpretation of his life and work, and Buñuel would surely approve. It also makes you want to see all his films again…. Always check the CBC website for opening times. The price of entry is a bargain at 3.50 euro.

It may be well off the beaten track, but Calanda, Spain, the birthplace of film director Luis Bunuel, has one of only a few museums devoted to a film director. It's possible to get to Calanda by bus, but it's best to drive there. About 1 1/2 hours from Zarragoza, or 2 1/2 hours drive from Barcelona. The museum, on three levels, features his films (all of them), a complete biography, plus momentos and props seen in many of his pictures. You can easily spend all day here. Museum hours are 10:00 - 2:00 and 4:00 to 8:00 PM. During the "intermission" (it's closed for siesta), you can visit the site of the Bunuel family house in the centre of town.
