Fundacio Robert Graves. Deyá, Spain

The home of Poet and author Robert Graves (1895-1985), living in Deià from 1929 until his death, was acquired by the Fundació Robert Graves and has been refurbished and adapted for visitors travelling the road between Andratx and Soller.

Aim of the Fundacio is to maintain a permanent exhibit of the life and work of Robert Graves by opening the author's home in Deià (Ca n'Alluny) to the public.

Visitors will find
- a small auditorium boasting a spectacular “time-line” covering the poet’s life, illustrated with personal photographs, book covers, and international events. It also boasts a series of large evocative photographs taken in 1953.
-a garden as an integral part of the visit. The main paths have been surfaced to allow disabled access but it remains essentially as it was when the house was built. The olive, carob, and almond trees growing on the land were left in place. Graves added an orange grove, a tangerine grove, and some lemon trees.
-the house. Robert Graves, and his then companion Laura Riding, built the house in 1932, and called it Ca n’Alluny, which in Catalan means “The Far House” It is a five minute walk from the picturesque village of Deià. The mountains rise up behind it and it looks out to the Mediterranean.
