A pit earth removed and remains of a bullet and a bullet shell have been found at Peñón Colorado, in the limit of Alfacar. They have admitted that there are “no bones or clothes” and say that it is very possible that the remains of the poet from Granada were disinterred in cadaverous phase.


The research team that has searched for the grave in Alfacar (Granada, Spain)where the remains of Federico García Lorca, could have been lying, along with three others shot, think that they have found this and conjecture that these remains were exhumed on dates close to their murder, explained in Madrid.

The researchers presented the final report of their researches, promoted by the cultural association Regreso con Honor, in which they affirm that they have found a pit with earth removed and remains of a bullet and a bullet shell in the Peñón Colorado, in the limit of Alfacar.

They have admitted that due to “there are no bones or clothes”, it is very possible that the remains of García Lorca,  the Republican teacher Dioscoro Galindo and the anarcho-syndicalist banderilleros Francisco Galadí and Joaquín Arcoyas, who were shot and buried supposedly with the poet in the early morning from 17 to 18 August 1936, were disinterred.

The pit is in the area designated by General Nestares, José María Nestares Cuéllar’s son, who was head of the Frente de Víznar and a member of the Falange, and the writer and journalist from Granada, Eduardo Molina Fajardo (1914-1979) as the site of the burials.

The multidisciplinary team that has made the report think that the remains were exhumed “on dates close to his death, when they were in the cadaverous phase, not skeletal,” archaeologist director Francisco Javier Navarro, said.

This last phase of the investigation, that began in September and ended a month later after removing 1,347 square meters of surface and extracting 4,620 meters of earth, was archaeological and has searched for evidence and remains that demonstrate its relationship with the events.

The truth about the death of García Lorca and his colleagues – the researchers pointed out – “will not be known” as long as they do not see the light reports made by the police from Granada José Mingorance.
