Full description
Throughout this tour, you will wander through the Alhambra Forest to the forecourt of the Palace of Carlos V. From there you can admire the Albaicin and Sacromonte areas, and from this fantastic spot, you’ll find the inspiration behind Lorca’s famous work “El Romancero Gitano” (Gypsy Ballads). This tour will show you the places in Alhambra which relate to Federico García Lorca and Manuel de Falla, including Falla's first house, the bath in Calle Real or the ancient bar "Polinario", where Federico and friends used to have fun at the beginning of the 20th century. You will also encounter the Plaza del Aljibe in the Alhambra, where the First Cante Jondo competition was held. You’ll finish up your tour at the Casa Museo de Manuel de Falla, a stunning yet modest house that today remains almost intact, including his piano and a number of aspects of his daily life. For Lorca, it was a very valued, touching house, thanks to its architecture and the moments he experienced there.
