This museum recreates the student atmosphere of the famous boarding house run by 'Doña Generosa' in Santiago de Compostela at the end of the 19th century and immortalized by the writer Alejandro Pérez Lugín in his novel 'La Casa de la Troya'.
It is a typical construction of the city's historical quarter that was built in the mid-18th century and is decorated according to the style of that period. It consists of three floors and a small attic crowning the house. The entrance is formed by a zaguán, or hallway, after which the house is divided into two separate areas: the house itself and the stables.
Entering the boarding house we can see the room of respect, with references to the writer, and the dining room, where photographs and objects related to the book's characters are displayed. On the second floor, the bedrooms, both the collective and individual one. And in the attic, the kitchen and a small adjoining room, which belonged to the landlady.
