Museo Fundación Rafael Alberti

The headquarters of the Rafael Alberti Foundation is located in El Puerto de Santa María, in a white and light-filled three storey house, in a simple and typically Andalusian construction in which the poet lived as a child. There we can find some mementos from his childhood, as well as the donation he and his first wife, María Teresa León, made his home town in 1978, and also some new contributions which arrive every day to complete the intense biography and work of Rafael Alberti.

The foundation’s main work as a cultural institution, consists of caring for Alberti’s legacy, encuraging research in this subject and promoting it, as well as remembering the importance of the “Generation of ‘27
