Walk through José Saramago’s house and discover the secrets of this distinguished writer. This tourist attraction still has some of Saramago’s belongings, and you can visit all of the rooms in the house, enjoying the magnificent sea views.
José Saramago’s library
“This library was not intended to keep books in, but rather to welcome people into”, is how José Saramago described this place. You can’t leave without discovering the place where the writer thought up so many of his characters. A unique library, the favourite place of this Nobel Prize winning author, which you will be lucky enough to see in person.
José Saramago’s garden
Another one of the house’s charms is the garden, with a wonderful olive tree that was very important for the Portuguese writer. He flew to Lanzarote with a branch from this tree. This olive tree is an iconic symbol of this special place, and it held an important place in José Saramago’s heart.
