It is the largest center for the study and dissemination of his work, which covers the paths of poetry, theater, essays and visual arts.

In addition, you can delve into his history, find memories of his childhood, the donation that he and his first wife, Maria Teresa Leon, made to his hometown in 1978, and the new contributions that arrive every day to complete the intense biography and work of Rafael Alberti.

  • Se equivocó la paloma.
    Se equivocaba.
    Por ir al Norte, fue al Sur.
    Creyó que el trigo era agua.
    Se equivocaba.

    Rafael Alberti, 1941

  • Despiértate.
    Y exprímete como un limón,
    que cuando mueras
    puedan tirarte al mar,
    sin zumo, seco.

    Rafael Alberti, 1993
