Its rooms are decorated with furniture, paintings and original artifacts of the poet such as sketches for theatrical productions and a sketch by Dali.

This building, a typical Granadino “carmen,” is stuated in the barrio of Antequeruela. Constructed in the XVI century, Manuel de Falla lived there from 1921 until the end of the Civil War in 1939, when he had to leave Spain. The building was conserved by friends of the composer as he left it, but Falla never returned, dying in Argentina in 1946 whilst still in exile. In this musuem there are a number of Falla´s artifacts, such as his piano. There are also fugurines made by Picasso, for the work “El sombrero de tres picos,” and various paper birds made by Miguel de Unamuno.
