Valderrubio and La Vega de Granada are witnesses and the key backdrop to the adolescence of Federico García Lorca. There, he learned to look at life and to keep village life, turning it universal. Immerse yourself in the heart of early 20th century rural life, its customs, and discover how these forged the genius of the poet, in the midst of a wonderful landscape.
We will visit the places that inspired him and that led him to write the most popular rural dramas in contemporary culture. How did the Blood Wedding (Bodas de Sangre) come about? Did the crazed lovers who defied their destiny really exist?
You will be in the house-museum of his adolescence and youth, the place that inspired the play The House of Bernarda Alba (La Casa de Bernarda Alba) and we will wander through the favourite nooks where young Federico used to write in the summer afternoons.
Our guides, professional and passionate about Lorca and the history and the city where he lived, will accompany you through the beautiful parts of the fertile plain of Granada and show you how its secrets marked the life of the poet.
The tour ends at the Mariana Pineda Park, where transport awaits to take us back to the centre of Granada.
