Casa-Museo de Federico García Lorca:
Federico García Lorca is one of Spain’s best-known and most loved writers. A poet and dramatist, he was also a skilled painter, pianist and composer. The Huerta de San Vicente is the summer house where Lorca penned a number of his most important works between 1926 and 1936, including The Gypsy Ballads and Blood Wedding (video clip), before he was killed by Nationalist partisans at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. The house retains all its original furniture, and Lorca’s bedroom has been kept exactly as it was when he lived there. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, but opening times vary according to the month and season, so phone first to ascertain current opening hours.
