Writers and their love for the city
The "Generación del 98" would
become the generation of writers that best reflect the spirit
of Santa Teresa's capital. Illustrious writers such as Azorín,
Pío Baroja and Miguel de Unamuno ponder on the city from
a perspective typical of that generation of writers. The universally
renowned Federico García Lorca dedicated some of his earlier
work as a young boy to Ávila, because he spent a short
period of time there.
