First to Review

This house belonged to French poet, Alfonse de Lamartin, who lived here in 1833 and for that reason is also known as ‘the house of writer’s.’ It is located very close to the amphitheatre and is a good place to start your tour of the old centre of the city. It now houses the creative fund of the Union of Bulgarian Writers and is instantly recognisable thanks to its charming design, which is a great example of Bulgarian Renaissance architecture.

Ejemplo de típica casa simétrica del siglo XIX donde se alojó 3 días en el verano de 1833 el famoso escritor y poeta francés Alphonse de Lamartine, cuando regresaba de un viaje por el Oriente Medio.

Es gracioso leer cómo se va desgranando la relación de Lamartine con la cada. En muchos lados dice que ésta fue la casa de Lamartine. Indagando más, resulta que no era de él, pero vivió allí. Si seguís investigando, parece que pasó un verano solamente. Y si vas a la fuente, la realidad es que tan sólo pasó 3 días.

Igual no hay que desmerecer lo bonita que es la casa y lo buenísimo que es para la cultura local el hecho de dedicar un espacio a la escritura y poesía en Plovdiv. De hecho, se alberga allí la Asociación de Escritores Búlgaros.
