In 1986, Camiliño Josesiño created his museum in Iria Flavia, the village where he was born. In it, they keep all his things so that they do not spoil and so that all the people who want may come to see them and learn a lot about Camiliño and his works, but also about other writers and artists who were his friends.
That's why every year we plan many activities at the Foundation so that, in addition to learning, people who visit us may have a lot of fun at Camiliño’s museum, especially children who come to see us on their school trips. We have prepared a lot of entertaining activities for them. Do you want to find about them? It does not matter how old you are because we cater to all ages.
Guided tours and workshops
You can visit the museum by playing. In addition, you can engage in a workshop related to the visit in which imagination, creativity and fun are guaranteed. Find out here about some of our tours.

‘Letreseo’: a week of letters at the museum
In May, for a week, every year the museum is celebrating because there is much to celebrate: there is the birthday of Camiliño Josesiño (May 11), Galician Literature Day (May 17) and International Museum Day (May 18). Do not miss it because we always have some surprises!
