Specialty Museum
Visit Museo Ruben Dario, the house of Nicaraguan poet, icon, journalist, and diplomat Ruben Dario. Massive brown doors greet you and lead into the charming, lush courtyard built in typical colonial style. Info boards in Spanish tell Dario’s story, from his early days at age 12 through to his death in 1916. Enter the old colonial residence and get a glimpse into history, for every piece of rustic yet humble furniture speaks for itself. See old black and white photos, intimate writings and manuscripts, and Dario's treasured bible. The bedroom where the famous poet ended his life has been preserved in its original state.

  • It is an old house where he lived the poet Rubén Darío. Even though Dario was born in Metapa (today called Ciudad Darío) in another Department and not in Leon (city called León Santiago de los Caballeros), there was education that characterized him, and after his career as a poet, Ambassador and distinguished representative of Spanish literature, died of cirrhosis of the liver in this House, cared for by his fourth and last spouse, Rosario Murillo. Later in this House lived another famous poet, Alfonso Cortés, who is considered by many as the highest representative of the Latin American metaphysical poetry. Alfonso Cortés, who lived some decades after Dario would say, "Dario is the largest between the two, but I am the most profound."

  • If you want to know a little more about the Insigne poet, novelist, translator, diplomat and Pedista Félix Rubén García Sarmiento, better known as Dario Rubén, here you will find all the necessary information from the postmodern poet Alfonso Cortés, who acquired the House of Darius for a favor that made the Lady Francisca Sanchez, last companion of life of Darius.
