1

This museum is a leading resource for education, dissemination and research into Andalusia’s contemporary history. It safeguards the symbols of the region’s autonomy. Blas Infante’s house is one of its most valuable assets, as is the extraordinary intellectual and cultural heritage it preserves and exhibits. As a meeting point for various generations, each with its own identity and history, it organises different exhibitions and a large variety of recreational and educational activities for the general public. 

The estate where the Museum of Andalusian Autonomy is situated is also home to the Casa de la Alegría/Dar al-farah (‘House of Joy’), the name given to Blas Infante’s house and the museum dedicated to him. It has now been declared a Site of Cultural Interest. The “Father of the Andalusian Homeland” lived his last years here. Blas Infante designed this building, which combines regionalist style with Andalusí architecture. Worthy of note is the Infante family’s dining room featuring Orientalist murals, the library and his office.
