The Andalusian genius chose to spend his "Granada period" in this delightful house with a private pleasure garden known as a carmen
The composer from Cadiz Manuel de Falla had strong links to Granada. The carmen that still exists, where this Andalusian genius lived for twenty years, bears testimony to this fact.
His house is located in the Antequeruela Alta area, very close to the Alhambra, in the highest section of the Realejo district. The carmen conserves the essence of the home in which Falla lived, recalling the ambience that would inspire him to compose the works of his Granada period.
The house-museum allows visitors to contemplate the personal items, keepsakes and gifts of the famous composer, a close friend of the writer from Granada Federico García Lorca.
