Francisco Fernández Palero was a Spanish composer and organist. He served for 40 years as organist of the royal chapel at Granada. He was almost certainly the composer of the 14 pieces ascribed to 'Palero' in the first Spanish keyboard tablature, Libro de cifra nueva (Alcalá, 1557), compiled by Luis Venegas de Henestrosa; one of the pieces bears his full name.
