Gerald Brenan House

The house where lived the British writer Gerald Brenan is a cultural

meeting point that aims to promote the connections between the

Anglo-Saxon artists and the Spanish ones, that is to say, it aims to get

that this house becomes a meeting place for cultures, as well as a place

to think about new ideas.

The Gerald Brenan’s House includes a room that has been dedicated

to recreate the atmosphere of the place and its life in Málaga, where

books and photos of the British writer stand out. Initiatives as the association

named Friends of Gerald Brenan’s House have been launched,

in which activities such as competitions of micro-stories are organized.

This center in Churriana opened its doors last October 2014, with a

ceremony that was attended by Ian Gibson or Tom Burns Marañón,

among others.

Tom Burns Marañón, the journalist and essayist, was responsible for

preparing the first conference dedicated to the figure of Brenan, in

which also Carlos Pranger, Ian Gibson and Alfredo Amestoy took part.

Gerald Brenan lived, like so many other people from Málaga, the

battle of Málaga in the Spanish Civil War, more commonly known

as La desbandá (The Stampide). As a result, he published one of

his works: El laberinto español (The Spanish labyrinth).

The mortal remains of the British writer are buried in the English

Cemetery of Málaga, which was declared Patrimony of Cultural

Interest. You can visit it to admire its temple, tombs and funerary

monuments of great beauty.
