Travel to the places where Federico’s life came to an end. In the midst of the impressive landscapes of the Sierra de Huétor we will talk about where, how and why the universal poet died.

We will start in the city of Granada -his Granada- where he always returned, where he always found inspiration and where, on 16 August 1936, he was arrested. We will move on to the villages of Víznar and Alfacar, located on the slopes of the Sierra, accompanied by water canals and thousand-year-old irrigation channels. Here we will talk about the circumstances of his death, the Civil War and the recovery of the figure of the poet in the collective memory of Spanish and Granada society. We will see the place where he spent his last night, also mass graves of compatriots shot during the Spanish Civil War, a park dedicated to the poet and the place where many believe he was shot in the early morning of 18 August 1936.

Our guides, professional and passionate about Lorca and the history surrounding his death, will help you to understand the ultimate phase of his intense life.

The tour ends in the village of Alfacar, next to the fountain of tears, where transport awaits to take us back to the centre of Granada.
