Calle de Lorca, Viznar, Granada, Spain:
N 37.24485°, W3.55347°. This road is where Spanish Poet Federico García Lorca crossed on his journey to be executed, along with a one legged school teacher, Dióscoro Galindo, and plumber and part-time bullfighter, Francisco Baladi; by local Falange - Nationalist militia - on 19 August 1936 at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War (17 July 1936 to 1 April 1939). He was thrown into an unmarked grave somewhere between Víznar and Alfacar, near Granada. Biographer, Ian Gibson states that García Lorca´s assassination was part of a campaign of mass executions directed to eliminate all the supporters of the left-wing Popular Front. The dossier compiled at Franco's request has yet to surface.
