This was one of our most unforgettable visits in Lanzarote. The tour of this writers home and library was an enlightening and intimate experience. His art works too are worth seeing. And our guide was very informative and pleasant. A great, great experience.

A relaxing spot. Saramago lived the last part of his life in Lanzarote and his modest but beautiful house gives you a good introduction and sense of the man and his works. Allow a good hour.

Decided to visit this place after spotting it on Tripadvisor. Makes a nice change to visit something a bit modern and see where Jose Saramago lived. Excellent tour guide and headsetsin English plus many other languages. Would visit again on another holiday here.
