The Spanish Theater stands on the site of an older theatre from 1583. This building replaced the earlier one in 1802.
Many of Spain’s most important playwrights have their names engraved on the building, including Federico García Lorca, whose young and talented life came to a tragic halt in
1936 in front of a Fascist firing squad in Granada.
There are performances in the evening throughout the week—check with the box office.
