The Federico Garcia Lorca Centre Archive

The Federico García Lorca Foundation was created in 1984 as a non-profit private institution by Isabel García Lorca, one of the poet’s sisters, and her nieces and nephew, who donated to this Foundation all the documents that the family had at that time, which conforme the real core of the current Archive. By the end of June 2018, Lorca’s legacy was moved from the Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid, its former home, to the Federico García Lorca Center, assuming its conservation and custody.

From May 11, 2020, the Legacy of Federico García Lorca is protected as Asset of Cultural Interest (BIC) according to the resolution of the Directorate General for Historical Heritage and Documentary, published in the BOJA n.88 of May 11, 2020 (page 236), in order to initiate the procedure for the inscription of the Legacy within the General Catalogue of the Andalusian Historical Heritage as an Asset of Cultural Interest.
