Overview

This museum, an example of Canary Island Mudejar architecture, offers visitors valuable historic, artistic and literary information on the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was established as a tribute to Fernando de León y Castillo, Marquis de Muni, and his brother Juan, the architect who designed the Puerto de La Luz, and is located in their former home. In 1976, the house next door, once belonging to the famous poet from Telde, Montiano Placeres Torón, was annexed. Specialising in the history of Spain, the museum's library has a valuable collection of luxurious first editions and special collections once belonging to León y Castillo and Montiano Placeres, plus their personal effects and furniture. Admission is free.
