This book aims to provide the reader with a guide to Granada. Divided into ten routes, it takes the visitor, step-by-step, from the poet Federico Garcia Lorca's birthplace in the village of Fuente Vaqueros to the site of his assassination, at the beginning of the Civil War, in the foothills outside the city. The author investigates the associations Granada held for Lorca, who was one of Spain's most celebrated poets. Areas such as the Alhambra and the old Moorish quarter of the Albaicin, the Royal Chapel in the cathedral where Ferdinand and Isabella lie buried, and the high mountains south of Granada with their view across the Mediterranean to Africa. This book should prove of interest to any visitor of this region of Andalusia, or anyone interested in Spanish literature. Ian Gibson is the author of "The Assassination of Lorca".
