Federico García Lorca spent his youth in this house in Valderrubio. The farmhouse now houses a local museum in memory of the poet and even preserves his room as he requested in a letter he sent to his family.
It is a traditional farmhouse with two floors, built in 1915 on the foundations of the old house that Federico’s father turned into the family’s country home. Living in this house Federico went to school and saw the first traveling theater. Until 1925, it was also the place where they spent their summers.
Federico García Lorca’s house was intended to serve both as a home and as a place to store the harvested crops. This house in turn is complemented by a small annex where the landlords lived, of a more popular design. Both houses open onto a large and bright patio, in which other buildings are located such as the corrals and the old stable, now converted into a theater and temporary exhibition hall.
The museum displays belongings and pieces of furniture, which in some cases had been preserved by the neighbors responsible for watching over the house and cultivating the family’s lands.
