Lucila Gamero Moncada

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Lucila Gamero Moncada was born in Danli, Honduras to Manuel and Camila. She was educated at the Colegio La Educacion. She wanted to study medicine but at the time she was prevented from doing so. Her father was a doctor so he taught her medicine. She practiced as both a physician and pharmacist, taking over her father’s clinic and running the family pharmacy.

She later received a diploma of Medicine and Surgery from the dean of the Faculty of Medicine. In 1924, she was appointed the head of the Hospital de Sangre in Danli. She married Gilberto and they had two children. She died in 1964, she was 90.

What you may not know about Lucila Gamero de Medina is that she was also a Honduran romantic novelist. She was the first woman in Honduras to produce literary work and in Central America to publish novels. She is known as “the grand dame of Honduran letters”.
