For all you literacy aficionado’s,  this beautifully preserved and interesting living-house museum is full of Galician literary history and is set amongst the pretty little lanes of Allariz. A great little find for those with a penchant for literary history & art.

Established in 1995 with the aim of sharing the works of the Galician intellectual writer, Mr. Vicente Martínez-Risco Agüero, the building houses the library, offices, manuscripts, notes and drawings of Risco himself, as well as personal objects and artistic works that belonged to the man himself and this wonderful house is the actual location where the writer worked and spent long periods of his life, until his death in 1998.

By visiting the headquarters of the Risco Foundation it allows you to experience his work, his life and his passion from literary, ethnographic and theorizing providing a whistle-stop tour of the Literary Galician identity.
