Holiday Travel Guide
Parque Garcia Lorca featuring flowers and a park

The former summer home and grounds of one of Spain’s most revered poets is now a delightful park and a museum dedicated in his memory.

Parque Garcia Lorca is named after one of Granada’s most famous sons, the poet and dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca. Set on expansive lands that once surrounded the Lorca family summer home, this large and attractive public park features sun-dappled, tree-lined avenues, extensive water features and a museum dedicated to Lorca’s life and times.

Walk down pathways bordered by manicured lawns. Along the way you’ll see gardens, water features and an orchard. Sit under the shade of a palm tree or in rose gardens surrounded by hundreds of scented blooms. Enjoy a picnic by the pond and let the children run around and climb the equipment in the playgrounds.

Lorca’s summer house, the Huerta de San Vicente, is now a museum within the park’s grounds. This is where the poet spent his last few days before his arrest and subsequent execution on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. View drawings, manuscripts, photographs and some of Lorca’s personal belongings.

Explore rooms that are filled with original furniture including the writing desk where he wrote some of his most famous works. There are also original paintings by such artistic luminaries as Salvador Dalí and Manuel Ángeles Ortiz.

The museum is open every day except Mondays and all visits are guided. There’s free admission on Wednesdays.Throughout the year, the museum hosts a range of cultural events including concerts, art exhibitions, puppet fairs and an open-air cinema in July, August and September. Visit the museum’s website for details of what’s going on during your stay in Granada.

Situated in the southeast of the city, Parque Garcia Lorca is a 10-minute walk from the downtown area. Alternatively, take the bus as several routes pass by the park. If you want to drive there are two lots nearby where you can park for a fee.The park is open daily and is free to enter. Among the facilities are restrooms, drinking fountains, outdoor cafés and terraces.
