    The House is located in Tías and is open from Monday to Saturday from 10 to 14. Admission is 8 euros. A guide who spoke in Spanish and an audioguide in Italian drove us through the various rooms of the House. At the entrance you will immediately notice the carpet of volcanic lava in Italian tiles "Brunelleschi" with imbrunite leaks from you by Saramago himself (look for the anecdote in the Notebooks of Lanzarote). Unforgettable is the clock stopped at 4:02, the time at which the writer has first met Pilar del Rio. The House is full of memories and traces of love to his woman. The photos that portray them are beautiful. The study raises a great thrill to its intimacy, pictures of beloved writers at the wall, stones gathered from around the world, the pens used. We couldn't resist to caress the legs of the desk nibbling freshly baked by Camoes, one of the dogs who lived in the House. The whole House with executives who remember his works the rest is so and evokes this emotion you want to caress her because he still feels Saramago's affection for those objects owned, lived and loved. More than a museum seems a House that the writer has temporarily left and it still lives. The offer of coffee to visitors increases this feeling of a space still alive, bright. The garden is simple with olive trees and a Chair post again where he loved to sit and watch the ocean away. It comes out then for their visit in another building the library which contains thousands of books classified by country of origin of the author. And only now do we understand why Saramago called this home "a house made of books". Eventually we leave the House excited about a visit, not only of a museum to preserve the memory and traces of a great writer, but a real home still alive and welcoming.

    It is the home and library of José Saramago, is precious and for those who love literature, is must-see because the library is spectacular. In addition the guide knows of what she speaks, and you explained perfectly. I thought that my 11-year-old son he would not, but to my surprise, I loved it because the simplicity of the writer flows throughout the House, which is still inhabited by his family, so only you can visit in the morning.

    We love it. Cozy and great House. Visit guided and audio. You put a Portuguese coffee and all! The visit is worth. He lives to Saramago in it.
