Federico Garcia Lorca media library, Montpellier. (2 images).

One sight.
Other sight.

The architecture of this media library, designed by the Boivin and Broussous, architects in Nimes, built starting from December 17th, 1999 and inaugurated on January 27th, 2001, pays homage to Spanish poet FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA.

The media libraries and the libraries contribute to the conservation of the inheritance, and facilitate the access of all the citizens to the culture.

FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA, was poet, playwright, painter, pianist and Spanish composer.
Born on June 5th, 1898 in Fuente Vaqueros close to Grenade and died on August 18th, 1936 with Víznar, shot in the beginning of the War of Spain which opposed to July 1936 to April 1939 the nationalists and the republicans.

The urban surface gathers all the communes, of which at least 40% of the active people in Montpellier, that is to say 74 communes.
The climate of Montpellier is a Mediterranean climate.
Contrary to a spread idea, it does not rain less in Montpellier that in Brest, but precipitations are much concentrated.
