Key Information

Description

On this private guided tour, explore the most historically significant streets that link the center of Granada to Huerta de San Vicente in the city's outskirts. Huerta de San Vicente was the García Lorca family's summer home from 1926 to 1936, and was where the late poet Federico García Lorca wrote his most important poems and plays. Learn about the most interesting buildings in the neighborhood of La Magdalena, and walk the path Lorca may have used on August 9, 1936, in a bid to flee the fascist troops that were after his life. Discover where the symbiosis between the Vega de Granada and the city began, the reason for the transformations in 19th and 20th-century Granada, and how Granada inspired Lorca in his literary work. Among other places, you'll visit Mariana Pineda’s last home, the Plaza de Gracia, a social gathering place in 20th-century Granada, and the Huerta de San Vicente, now a house-museum. Our professional guides are deeply passionate about Lorca as a historical figure as well as his history and the city he lived in. They'll help you retrace his footsteps through the various sites in Granada and to his family home on this enriching tour.
