It's rarely open

What a shame. This lovely former home of Manuel de Falla is rarely open. You should telephone to check before climbing the hill.

An Interesting house with fantastic views

An interesting house with fantastic views. Items belonging to Manuel De Falla and placed where he left them before moving to Argentina. It is worth a quick visit.

A must for any lover of Spanish history and culture
Feb 2019 • Couples
What a lovely visit this is! It held a special fascination for me as a pianist, but anyone interested in Spanish history and culture will enjoy this. At only 3 Euros for a guided tour, this is fantastic value. The famous composer rented this unassuming cottage from 1921 to 1939, just him and his sister. Both were devout Catholics and attended mass every day. Having survived the Civil War, when Hitler invaded Poland de Falla could stomach no more and spent the rest of his days in Argentina. The little house is simple and furnished just as they left it. He was clearly not a rich man at this point. You see his cutlery and crockery and his collection of medication; he was something of a hypochondriac. But he was part of a circle of the other great artistic characters of his day. The house has paintings from Dali, Picasso, Goya. Lorca and Segovia were regular visitors. it is amazing to think of all these great names gathered in this house. His own writing implements are still here, and the piano he played and on which he composed. I was even allowed to play it, and thereby establish a physical rapport with the great man! Our guide had limited English (though far better than my Spanish) and gave us an engaging tour, though I believe this may be set to change.

By chance we arrived 15 minutes before a piano recital in the adjacent concert hall. That was excellent and set the scene for our visit it de Falla’s house.

You ring the bell and then the door is opened and after parting with just 3€ you get the most amazing introduction to the simple life of this devout and creative man.

The best €3 visit I have ever made! To stand in a room visit regularly by Lorca picaso, Stravinsky and other cultural giants was truly amazing.Even if you have never heard of Falla this little time capsule with its amazing clearly devoted guide is truly enchanting,

Highlight of our trip
Dec 2018 • Friends
This unassuming museum is worth a detour.

Just off the busy street with tourists packed to see Alhambra. You need to go down through two levels of garden and then ring the bell.

The tour guide unlocks the building from the inside and explained that there was a large tour arriving in 30 min and his colleague who did the English speaking tour was away helping that group arrive.

He stated he could show us around and as he was doing this two other couples joined us. The tour wa facinating and he casually pointed out the original paintings by artists including Picasso. He also showed us oriogionall packaging of the antidepressants and other drugs. Despite stating his English was not good he wa able to passionately explain the history and we enjoyed every minute of it. It felt like an absolute bargain for 3 Euro’s

Essential for anyone interested in Spanish culture

Charming guide who vividly described Falla's life. I don't know whether tours are available in languages other than Spanish but, even as a novice in Spanish, I found her easy to understand. She tipped us off about taking coffee on the veranda of the Alhambra Palace Hotel which is next door and has a magnificent view of the city. The splendid interior is also worth a look.

A must see house
Aug 2018
A long walk up the hill (or take a taxi) but well worth it. Lovely little house/gardens in the shadow of the Alhambra where the composer spent many years of his life. Only 3 Euros entrance or 1 Euro for pensioners, students and enemployed.

I didn't have the chance to visit the place. I talked with some people living close by, and they told me they hadn't seen the place open at least during the last year!

This small house/museum exudes character of De Falla
Apr 2018 • Couples
Situated on the hill opposite the Alhambra this museum is very interesting. We arrived there on a Saturday morning to find a free lunchtime concert in the garden which was a real treat.
