"Rimbaud House in Harar" Top 5 Page for this destination Ethiopia Off The Beaten Path Tip by SirRichard
Ethiopia Off The Beaten Path: 23 reviews and 20 photos
In Harar you can find a rather interesting and unusual house (now a museum), where the French poet is said to have lived, in spite of the fact that the building was constructed after his departure. But there are also other 2 Rimbaud houses (these authentic), one of them in the main square.
Nevertheless, the museum of Rimbaud Center is an example of Indian inspired architecture (restored by the authorities of Harar between 1996 and 1999) and inside you can see ancient photos (end of the 19th century, beginning 20th) of Harar, a room (small) dedicated to the poet, and a documentation and research centre, where you can find most (all?) of Rimbaud books.
