"Casa Museo Miguel Hernandez" Orihuela Off The Beaten Path Tip by manuelEB

Orihuela Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 1 photos

During Franco's regime, Miguel Hernandez became, a s in the Orwellian novel, a non-person. His poems were banned, as it was banned all things related to the Republic. In recent years, the local governemt of Orihuela got aware of the universal character of Hernandez. The house where he lived with his family became a museum. A quite place where to get in touch with the inspiration to his more romantics poems. Hernandez lived for the freedom (Para la Libertad. Sangro, lucho, pervivo. Para la LIbertad!)

Ask locals for directions. One in every 20 would tell you. Pro's: you improve your Spanish.
Con's: It takes time to find the place.(-;
