Something you really must do. Shameful as it is, I didn't really know anything about Jose Saramago before this visit. However, it would be extremely difficult to leave this place without being one of his biggest fans. It is like, in a way, the Casa...More

Hard to explain how meaningful this visit was. I have heard about Jose Saramago since ever. Not just at school, but everywhere. For 8£, you can visit both house and Saramago's library with a little surprise at the end! Is so worth it! You will...More

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.

You don’t have to book in advance, you can just go and buy the tickets there. Isn’t far from puerto del Carmen, however you need a transport to go there. Hope it helps.
