The history of lesbians in Spain's different regions
La Roca de la Sierra
La Roca de la Sierra is a town with a population of around 1,500 people sitting in the hollow of the mountains, in a transition zone to the Guadiana plains. While there is a prehistoric settlement that existed on the site, the current town has a medieval origin and was likely founded in the thirteenth century during the Reconquista period.
Calle Carolina Coronado is a street in the town named after Carolina Coronado, one a handful of Spanish Sapphic writers from the 19th Century. She was part of the hermandad lírica. Coronado was widely read at the time but later written out of history because she challenged patriarchal norms of the era.
