We start our tour at the León y Castillo House Museum under the sign of WISDOM. It was one of Sanmao’s favourite places to go to, as she was a regular visitor of its library. She would attract attention as she immersed herself in her reading, always in exactly the same corner of the beautiful courtyard of this house museum, which maintains the same appearance it had back then. The library as such no longer exists, it is currently the museum’s archive. As the city has moved forward, other newer libraries have emerged with more modern facilities, but at that time the library here was the only one in the whole of the southeast of the island.
