Casa Museo de Manuel Antonio - omarfeitotradicion
Museum House of Manuel Antonio
It is the first house museum open to the public within the framework of the "Rianxo's Literary Academy" project, aimed at the musealisation and enhancement of the houses of Manuel Antonio, Castelao and Rafael Dieste.
Situated in the poet's birth house on Rúa de Abaixo street, where he lived until he was two years old, and stayed frequently during his short life. Transcending the most topical view of this kind of museums, it still preserves its original furniture and displays documents and personal items, as well as references to the life and socio-political context of the author through original and audiovisual materials.
Three floors provide an approach to Manuel Antonio's time and life. The ground floor exhibits a selection of old photographs taken by Xosé Pérez, Manuel Antonio's cousin, which brings to life the Rianxo of the 1920s. The first and second floors review the poet's life and work, and provide references to the period he lived in, from a literary, political and social point of view.
The House museum offers both independent visits during opening hours and guided visits for organised groups (schools, associations). All guided visits must be reserved in advance by telephone or email.
