This house is a private residence and cannot be entered. It is worth a walk by (although difficult to find much to look at from the street) if you're in the area since he was a Nobel Prize winner. There are a few spots that...More

This is simply a house that Gabo bought and then remodelled. He lived there only briefly, but it still belongs to his family. It is just inside the city walls (best seen from up there) and easy to locate by its unusual style. A couple...More

The house cannot be visited. I would not recommend to make a long detour, but if you are near you can pass by and have a short look.

Just pass by if you're on the area. It's just the building, people are not allowed to go in. A shame, there should be a museum or something.

You would think that for a native-son there would be a museum but it is now a private residence that cannot be visited. All you can see is the tall orange wall/facade.

The house can only be seen from the outside as it now a private residence. Tall orange walls is all that can be seen. The cafe next door has a mural of his portrait.
