Emeterio Gutiérrez Albelo Home-Museum

The house of a famous 20th-century poet.

If you're a literature buff you won't want to miss this one: the birthplace of a key figure of Spanish literature of the last century. Located on Calle San Francisco in the old quarter of the town of Icod de los Vinos, you'll find the birthplace of avant-garde poet Emeterio Gutiérrez Albelo (1905-69), one of the leading figures of Spain's "Generation of '27" which included the likes of Federico García Lorca. The façade alone is worth a look as a good example of the typical local architecture. The interior displays books and letters of the poet, as well as photos, drawings and everyday objects.
