LORCA’S GRANADA: FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF SPAIN’S MURDERED POET

It’s 80 years since Spain’s favourite poet was executed by firing squad. We set out to discover his hometown of Granada through his eyes

I was in a hurry: I had an appointment with Maria Angustias García-Valdecasas, a senior guide with Cicerone, a tour company offering Lorca-themed walking tours.

We had arranged to meet outside the Centro Federico García Lorca, a new museum from the Federico García Lorca Foundation, directly opposite the cathedral.”

Granada’s Mystical Alhambra

Cicerone walking tours Alhambra“Day 2 in Granada. With a busy day in Granada ahead, we met up our guide Maria (Maria Angustias), a lovely and very informative lady who gives walking tours around Granada. Our tour began in the Moorish Quarter, where we walked through narrow streets and town squares busy with locals, while learning all about Granada’s history and how the so to speak paceful conquest of 1492 is waht perserved much of the Islamic architecture (…) Thanks to our partners for making this visit to Granada possible: Air Canada Vacations, Hotel Abba Granada, CICERONE Granada Walking Tours…” http://www.acprail.com/blog/2013/06/granadas-mystical-alhambra/

Sur les traces de García Lorca. Visite guidée.Cicerone Lorca á vacances voyage 2010

“De retour à Grenade oú sa famille avait déménagé pour ses études, María Angustias Valdecasas, guide spécialiste de Lorca, vous mènera sur les traces du poète. La guide peut même vous conduire dans une de ces grottes où les amateurs viennent entendre du “cante jondo”. On peut y recontrer Curro Albaicín, un grand interprète des poèmes de Lorca”.

“Il jouait très bien du piano et son professeur avait recommandé à son père que Federico monte à Paris pour parfaire son apprentissage, mais son père a refusè, explique María. Il s’est alors destiné à la littérature… María montre la maison de ses amis Rosales (angle Angulo et Tablas) où il a été arrêté en juillet 1936 et la Bâtisse du gouvernement civil où il a été détenu avant d’être envoyé à Vízanar”.

Goûter L’andalousie.

“C’est au coeur de la belle cité de Grenade que le gastronome qui ne sommeille jamais très longtemps en moi est entré en appétit autant avec la culture andalouse qu’aveq sa bonne chère. Il était midi passé. Ma guide, María angustias, m’a conduit au Chokito, à l’ombre d’un platane centenaire, sur la Plaza del Campillo”.

Trésors Musulmans.

“Il reste encore bien des traces de cette époque à Grenade: les rues sinueuses de l’authentique quartier arabe d’Albayzín où les maisons blanches font penser à une médina marocaine; ey le Bañuelo, ces bains arabes du XIesiècle dont la construction a été financée par… un vizir juif”.

…”Le pic de la splenderur de cet art est arrivé après 1400, car il s’agissait d’une période de paix et de grand essor artistique, affirme María Valdecasas. Les relations entre chrétiens, juifs et musulmans étaient très amis”.

EXPLORE. Tales of the city.
“CICERONE is one of the few official tour companies endorsed by the Junta de Andalucia offering a guided “walktour” into the heart of Granada. Meeting daily by the Townhall at Plaza del Carmen…. Where 2 met up with Rosa Terrones to experience the tour. Whilst her official role is a tour guide, she is more of a storyteller, walking through the centuries as well as the city, as you let your imagination stretch back to when rivers and bridges once criss- crossed the now busy streets, reliving Granada´s rich and chequered past.
…The tour offers snippets of information, facts and details that you won´t neccessarily find elsewhere…Rosa´s enthusiasm and passion for the rich history of the city is contagious as she talks and pinpoints Granada´s most significant buildings.
What works in this tour is that it gives you something that you just can´t get from a guidebook: the snippets of information and the storytelling experience.”
