The Casa de la Literatura Gabriel García Márquez was the home of the Colombian author. He lived here with his wife and family from 1975 until his death in 2014. The Gabriel García Márquez House of Literature became a literary center in October of 2021 with the sale of personal items and memorabilia. Since then it’s opened to host a number of events associated with literature and similar events.
Most recently, the Casa hosted an exhibition of some of the author’s correspondence. This included exchanges with Pablo Neruda, Carlos Fuentes, Wim Wenders, Augusto Monterroso, Woody Allen, Joaquín Sabina, and his long-time editor and agent, Carmen Balcells. His literary estate, including 27,000 pages of manuscripts, photographs, letters and scrapbooks, is in the possession of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas. The University has digitized most of the collection.
The Casa de la Literatura Gabriel García Márquez hosts several important events each year. It’s been something of a pilgrimage site for followers since his death in 2014.
