The house where Rosalía de Castro spent the last years of her life is now a museum that can be visited on one’s own, featuring the events that marked the life of this illustrious woman, an essential writer of the 19th-century literary scene, who was also one of the first women to write in the Galician language. There is also a recreated rural house whose style is halfway between agricultural and aristocratic, surrounded by gardens. These green areas form part of the Camellia Route, a circuit of gardens of tourist, historical and artistic interest centred on this flower. The Rosalía de Castro Foundation organises tours for school children, featuring specific educational material.
