Casa de la Troya

Let's talk about Doña Generosa Carollo

Doña Generosa Carollo, a lady who lived in the late nineteenth century and managed a famous student hostel, was immortalized by writer Alejandro Perez in his novel "The House of Troy." This museum is a perfect recreation of that hostel, with great attention to detail in its different rooms: the dining room, the appliances and utensils in the kitchen, the bedrooms, the owner's room, and a host of objects and photographs related to the protagonists of the novel. They have also managed to recreate the cozy atmosphere of the time throughout its three floors and attic. You may visit from Tuesday to Sunday, and group visits are possible.
