Casa Museo Lorca me 1 English writer Gerald Brenan returned to Spain in 1949, among other things to find Lorca’s grave. The whereabouts of Lorca’s remains is still a mystery. He was one of the first victims of thw civil war, as was his brother-in-law, who was the Mayor of Granada. Lorca was told to flee but refused. In his book The Face of Spain, Brenan speaks with a number of people in Granada about Lorca and his execution. No one will ever know exactly how many  people were murdered. At first, they were buried in mass graves in the cemetery on the Alhambra hill; later, they were trucked up into the mountains to be shot and thrown into the gorges.
