Jose María de Pereda's House in Polanco

In Polanco, the writer's cradle.

A close friend of Benito Pérez Galdós, José María de Pereda was the author of famous 19th-century novels of manners. Many of his stories are set in Polanco, his hometown, near Suances and Torrelavega and just over twenty kilometres from Santander. In this village, you will find the beautiful 18th-century mountain house where he was born. And also his later residence, a spacious 19th-century building with a beautiful garden. In this house, he wrote his famous Sotileza and welcomed his friends, many of whom were prominent artists. Today it is a house museum based on the author.
