The Casa Museo Garcia Lorca is a museum with exhibits relating to the life and work of the poet Federico Garcia Lorca.
The Huerta de San Vicente belonged to the family of Federico García Lorca, the poet and playwright from Granada. Between 1926 and 1936, they would spend their summers here and during this time, Lorca wrote some of his major works (Bodas de Sangre, Yerma, etc.). Federico García Lorca was in fact staying here when he was arrested and shot in August 1936 at the start of the Spanish Civil War. The museum contains original paintings and works of art by various artists (Dalí, Lorca, Alberti, etc.) and also family documents, objects and furniture such as Lorca's desk, his gramophone and piano.
There are guided tours of the museum every 45 minutes and they last 30 minutes.
