About the Museum
The Lope de Vega House Museum (Casa-Museo de Lope de Vega) is a museum managed by the Regional Government of Madrid and owned by the Real Academia Española (Royal Spanish Academy). Since its re-opening at the beginning of 2009, the institution has begun a period of activity oriented toward showing the historic richness of Spanish literature, starting with the figure of the 'The Phoenix of Wits', and valuing his connection with other authors. This is an important period in Spain's intellectual past, with many different literary and artistic manifestations. The objectives of the museum are to make the public aware of Lope de Vega's life and extensive body of work, especially his poetry and plays; to facilitate knowledge about the society, religion, customs, history, literature and art of the Golden Age, through Lope de Vega and other artists and literary peers; to show the urban planning, the architecture and the aspects of daily life of the times through the House Museum, located in the center of baroque Madrid and to promote respect for Cultural Heritage and Museums.
