Nueva España

Nueva España


Jardín de Gloria Fuertes, located at Calle de la Madre de Dios, 2B, is a small tree-shaded neighborhood park named in honor of Gloria Fuertes. Fuertes was a poet and member of the Generación del 50, the first post-war generation of Spanish writers. She was a lesbian and feminist, and an important one in Francoist Spain at a time when the regime demanded conformity to strict ideological gender roles.

Gloria Fuertes lived on Avenida de Alberto Alcocer, moving there as an adult from Lavapies. Despite the move, she continued to travel around the Madrid, returning frequently to Lavapies.
