A house in Calle Carabeo in Nerja, where the celebrated Granada poet Federico García Lorca spent his summers during the 1920s and 30s, is up for sale.

Three of his nieces who inherited the property from their mother have put it on the market for three million euros.

The house covers 300 square metres over two floors and includes an allotment above the town's cliffs. "The house is well maintained with original features," says the description in one of the estate agents which is advertising the property. They told SUR that there has already been some interest in the house and in particular from potential Irish and Swedish buyers.

Nerja's La Volaera association, whose objective is to promote and preserve the town's historical and cultural heritage, has proposed that the town hall buy the property with a view to using it as a cultural centre to promote the history of tourism in Nerja and to pay tribute to Lorca and his contemporaries, known as 'the generation of 27'. A spokesperson told SUR that the town hall "is going to look into" the proposal.
