Numerous personal possessions and pieces of furniture belonging to the poet are on display together with editions of all of his works and those of other Canary Islands poets. And a yearly poetry competition, which is well supported.

The museum’s holdings consist of objects or memorabilia closely linked to the author, and are based on the writer’s legacy.

A spectacular forest once covered the northern part of Gran Canaria. It was at the time of the Spanish conquest (15th century). All that's left today are two redoubts, the Finca de Osorio (in Teror) and the Tilos de Moya.

It's said that it was here, that the Pre-Hispanic chief, Doramas, took refuge after attacking the Castilian conquerors, which is why it's also known as Selva de Doramas (Doramas' Wood), and despite the fact that the characteristic monteverde vegetation is not as predominant as it once was, it's still worth visiting Los Tilos.

These days, there are various old caseríos (country-houses), such as Azuaje, with its medicinal waters.

Admission: free.

History

Moya is peaceful and charming little town. To get here you'll pass along a narrow winding road, surrounded by huge volcanic valleys. The town is well known for its fantastic Neo-Romanesque church. This impressive structure dates back to the first half of the 20th century and is the birthplace of famous Spanish poet, Tomas Morales.

Tomas Morales is one of Gran Canaria's most popular poets. He was born in 1884 and lived until 1921. Just across from the church is the actual house where he grew up. During the 1970's the house was transformed into a museum dedicated to his life and work. There are some very interesting exhibits inside with manuscripts, photographs, paintings and much more. They even have his original typewriter on display.


 

Here is space to much more, so please help webmaster - bring stories from the different places, trip suggestions, travel then help webmaster - bring accounts of journey's, of course with pictures, if it is possible, and of course with a copyright to use them.
