I don’t know this author’s works, but this is a museum dedicated to him. Easy to find, and a central location.

El Barco de Avila, Spain460 contributions225 helpful votes
Miguel de Unamuno was a very important writer, thinker and political figure from the end of the 19th Century until his death in 1936. This house is the official residence of the rector of the University of Salamanca and Unamuno lived here from 1900 to 1914, the first time he held the post but not in the years preceeding his death when he held the post again. The property is next door to the University building (where you buy tickets) and tours take place every hour on the hour in the morning of Monday to Friday. The tour we attended was in Spanish and I am not sure whether other languages are catered for. You receive a brief but informative talk on Unamuno´s life in the ceremonial hall on the ground floor followed by a film. You then go upstairs and are taken through the main events of Unamuno´s life and then see his study, living room and bedroom. There are many artifacts moved from the house he died in, and as so often happens with writers you get a very good picture of the man. Recommended for fans. The tour lasts one hour.

I have never heard of the man who the museum is dedicated to. But I thought it was ok. Not something I would probably do again but enough to keep me interested.

The important Spanish intellectual, writer, professor, politician and educator Miguel de Unamuno lived in this house next to the front gate of the university. He is a fascinating figure in 20th century Spanish and European culture, but he has been largely forgotten or neglected by now outside of Spain, and perhaps in Spain as well. It is a nice house and the guide gave a good overview of Unamuno and the residence. However, I do not think this is one of the more important sites in Salamanca.

Located within the University of Salamanca, the space was Unamuno's office and home during the years that he served as Dean. While perhaps off the beaten track for many tourists, it is well worth a visit. The only limiting factor is the required guided tour is given only in Spanish. The space has been filled with furniture of the period, much of it actually belonging to Unamuno. There is much to see even for the tourist who may not speak Spanish.
