House-Museum of Blasco-Ibanez - Museum in Valencia, Spain.
Casa-Museo de Blasco Ibanez
You may have heard of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" - a WWI novel which was at some point the second most read book (after the Bible) in USA. Although Blasco Ibanez himself was a fascinating figure, worthy of your interest, this museum is hardly worth the detour. The famous writer was a controversial, revolutionary figure and two generations of dictatosrhip tried to wipe out his identity. There is nothing left of his living quarters. Now it is just a small collection of his personal belognings and books. However, if you understand Spanish the guide will tell you many interesting things about this fascinating man. But generally, it is too far to be worth the trip.
