Classroom of Antonio Machado

Description

The classroom where Antonio Machado taught, from his arrival in 1912 until 1919, is still preserved in the colonnaded courtyard. In this high Andalusia, which seemed so “wet and cold” to him at first, he deepened his philosophical roots and wrote an important part of his work. The classroom is preserved as Don Antonio lived it: the same hydraulic floor, the maps of the time hanging on the walls, the students’ desks, showcases with photocopies of documents, the same worn black board and the teacher’s chair; a cupboard with old books and a coat rack with an umbrella together with a suitcase on a shelf, recreate the atmosphere of the second decade of the 20th century.
