Overview

"My little house, my peace, my garden and my study" Such was the way Lope described his house in a letter to a friend. A visit to this house es a testimony, a literary and emotional journey, an invitation to travel through art, literature and history to a bygone Madrid. Access to the museum is via guided group tours (maximum 10 people accompanied by a guide)Tours must be booked in advance by telephone or email.

You can visit the museum only with a guided tour. It's necessary to enroll by mail or phone. The tour is then very informative.

Access to the museum is via guided group tours and you have to make a reservation. Museum, is not only a tribute to the great playwriter but is also an image of 17th century Madrid with its history, culture and everyday life.More

Great free tour on one of Spain's most prolific writers & personalities - what a life this man had. Guide was very knowledgeable and group was small (because of no-show) but otherwise would have been crowded since the house was quite narrow.More

Don't expect to see a fancy palace but it shows you instead how the upper middle class lived. The tour size is limited so make sure to make a reservation. It is well worth the visit. Some of the furniture is really amazing.More
