LORCA

Spain´s most famous 20th-century literary figure, Federico Garcia Lorca, was murdered by Fascists, probably for his political leanings and sexual orientation, in Granada, in 1936 - just before the outbreak of the Civil War. Although renowned throughout the world, Lorca´s name was banned under Franco and he was apparently forgotten. After Franco died, his legacy was finally acknowledged by his home city. Now controversial plans are afoot to identify his remains, their whereabouts (just outside the city) having been confirmed back in the 1960s by Irish historian Ian Gibson - he found out from the man who actually buried Lorca. You can visit the Lorca family´s summer house in Granada.
