Life's ups and downs brought Unamuno as far as here: it was love at first sight.

Casa Museo Miguel de Unamuno

His great relationship with the island

The man from Bilbao, Miguel de Unamuno, was vice-chancellor rector of the University of Salamanca and one of the prime examples in the generation of 98 was obliged to reside on the island of Fuerteventura during a period of his life. It was during the year of 1924 when the dictator Primo de Rivera stripped him from his teaching responsibilities and sent him into exile in the most remote and inhospitable place, according to his own criteria, and this was how Unamuno arrived here to live over five months. During this time, the writer ended up falling in love with Fuerteventura, and started different works on the island; whether it be a theme based on Fuerteventura, or dedicated to gathering expressions, variations of the language, and Majorero vocabulary. Nowadays, the house that the great author lived in that year in the old Hotel Fuerteventura keeps its doors open to show the work and the memories that he left on Canarian land.
