ALGECIRAS is to honour Paco de Lucia with his very own tourist route.

The route will visit the spots synonymous with the flamenco legend’s life.

The guitarist, who heralds from the town, died of a heart attack while on holiday in Mexico this year.

The town’s tourist office has produced a leaflet with detailed information about his  life as well as a map that highlights 10 sites, key to his life.

These include the house where he was born and his tomb in the town’s cemetery.

Meanwhile, Paco’s longtime collaborator, singer Cameron de la Isla, is also to be honoured in his town of San Fernando, near Cadiz.

The house that the iconic flamenco singer was born in is to be turned into a museum, the town hall has announced. Cameron died of cancer in 1992.
