Huerta de San Vicente in Granada â€“ Pleasant Park and Garcia Lorca MuseumHuerta de San Vicente takes an important place during the studying of Federico Garcia Lorca as a poet. It was his family home.
His parents bought this house on the outskirts of Granada, where the orchards of the Vega were located.
This place, situated on the border between city and countryside, served as his summer residence from the time of the Arabs, where Federico returned to find his roots.
Here he wrote many of his best works (Romacero Gitano, La Casa de Bernarda Alba) in the summers of 1926 to 1936.
Today the building is the GarcÃa Lorca House-Museum, which presents the poet's original objects, drawings, manuscripts, furniture and paintings.
The Federico GarcÃa Lorca Museum maintains its structure and furnishings from the time the poet lived there.
The building dates from the early twentieth century, with a simple design and decoration, typical of this type of houses in the Vega of Granada.
These buildings are perfect for maintaining cooler internal temperatures, and at night they are pleasantly warm.

Opinions about Huerta de San Vicente in Granada
Was closed for renovationsReally looking forward to visiting Federico Garcia Lorca's house. Researched it all before visiting, drove all the way there only to find it was closed for renovations. Nothing anywhere I could find to say that it would be closed even on the official Granada Tourist Board website. Not happy!! Big negative for the Granada Tourism Board!! (Keith)
