Victor Hugo House

Casa Victor HugoVictor Hugo House

Notice: The Victor Hugo's house is currently closed for renovation works

A typical 17th century house with direct access to the Bay of Pasaia. Victor Hugo lodged in it during his stay in the village of Pasaia in 1843.

Through the exposition "Victor Hugo, travelling down the memory", we will enjoy Pasaia's nineteenth-century essence which completely fascinated the writer. A tribute, not only to the valuable testimony of the drawings and documents he bequeathed, but to all those who left their mark paying tribute to this brilliant writer throughout history.

From the balconies on all of its three floors we can enjoy views of the Bay that inspired the writings and engravings of Victor Hugo during his stay in Pasaia. Let him be your guide, come and experience the romanticism of Pasaia.
At Victor Hugo House you will find:

  • Tourist Office
  • Museum House: Permanent Exhibition "Victor Hugo, travelling down the memory". It displays elements belonging to different collections of this house since its first inauguration as the House of Victor Hugo in 1902. In addition, we will find an audiovisual interactive presentation named "A tourist guide called Victor Hugo". With this presentation we will discover the Pasaia of the 19th century through Hugo's impressions, as well as the recreation of the room where he lodged in. Here, the writer will tell us about the lifestyle of his times.
  • Temporary exhibition gallery.

If you come into the village from the Chimney in the Bizkaia Neighbourhood, you will find it in the centre of Pasaia San Juan, or Donibane in Basque, beneath the second archway of the "..first street...which always takes you where you want to go" (Victor Hugo); or at the end of the first passageway if you take the boat across from San Pedro, just like Victor Hugo did in his day.
