Description

Discover Lorca’s roots in the town of Valderrubio, amid the beautiful landscapes of the Vega Granadina, with a journey through his adolescence and youth. At the same time, you'll explore the rural Spain of a century ago, and the customs and experiences that shaped Lorca’s personality. Walk across the deep Vega plains that marked the poet’s life forever, visiting the places that inspired him to write the best-known rural plays in Spanish culture. Highlights of the tour include a visit to the house (now a museum) where he spent his youth and which inspired the play The House of Bernarda Alba, and a stroll through some of the young Lorca's favorite spots. Our guides, professionals with a passion for Lorca as a figure and the history and city he lived in, will help you follow in his footsteps through the different corners of the Vega region, which set the stage for his journey through this world. Choose from English, French, German, or Spanish guidance. The tour ends at Mariana Pineda Park in the town of Valderrubio, where we will then return to the city center of Granada.
