Huerta de San Vicente and Federico García Lorca MuseumAdd to My Granada
The Huerta de San Vicente was the summer retreat of Federico García Lorca’s family between 1926 and 1936. It is a great place to learn about his life and work.
Here, the poet and playwright from Granada wrote some of his most famous works and also spent the days leading up to his arrest and death, at the start of the Spanish Civil War.
The museum first opened to the public in 1995. It is situated in the largest park of the city, which is named after the poet.
The house has not been altered and its original structure is still perfectly preserved. You can visit the kitchen, the family’s bedrooms and even the piano belonging to Federico. Many photographs, drawings and manuscripts are on display.
