Federico García Lorca loved Barcelona and Catalunya. In a letter to his friend from Granada, a social gathering partner in his youth from Granada, Melchor Fernández Almagro, a journalist and later a historian and academic, he says it very clearly: «On the other hand, Barcelona is something else, isn’t it? There you have the Mediterranean, the spirit, the adventure, the high dream of perfect love. There are palm trees, people from every country, surprising advertisements, Gothic towers and a rich urban tide... What a pleasure it has been for me to meet that air and that passion! I am not surprised that they remember me, because I made very good friends with all of them and my poetry was received as it really does not deserve. Sagarra had with me deferences and camaraderie that I will never forget. In addition, I am a furious Catalanist, I sympathized a lot with those people so built and so fed up with Castile».
