In 1964, this museum was set up in the former home of Benito Pérez Galdós as a tribute to the most famous and internationally-renowned Canary Island literary figure. It's a faithful example of a 19th century middle class Canary Island house, and, inside, you'll find some of the author's original manuscripts, plus part of his collection of 19th and 20th century Spanish literature. Among other notable items on collection, a lovely portrait of the author by the Valencian painter Joaquin Sorolla stands out. Every two years scholars from all over the world meet here for the Congreso Internacional de Estudios Galdosianaos.
