We invite you to unveil the mark left by Lorca in the village of Fuente Vaqueros and the treasures hidden in the fertile plain of Granada (Vega Granadina), a journey through the trunk of Lorca’s childhood memories, simultaneously uncovering the vestiges and transformations of a village of Arab origin and Andalusian tradition.

Learn about the village that saw the birth of the most relevant sensitivities of the 20th century, visiting the places that today preserve part of his essence and his artistic and literary legacy, and obtaining in-depth knowledge of the stages that make up the life of one of the great references in contemporary Spanish culture.

Among other places, we will spend time at his childhood museum-house, the church where he was baptised and we will wander around some of the nooks Federico refers to in his most popular works.

Our guides, professional and enthusiast followers of Lorca and of the history and the city he lived, will accompany you in his footsteps through the different areas of the fertile plain (Vega) that marked the poet’s life.

The tour ends in Chauchina where transport awaits to take us back to the centre of Granada.
