Granada), report:

We observed the Swift/XRT location of the GRB 120326A (Goad et al.,  
GCNC 13110) using the IAC80 82cm telescope at Tenerife (Canary  
Islands, Spain).   We took a set
of VRI-band images from 02:23:20 UT to 05:47:06 UT. The optical  
transient (Klotz et al., GCNC 13108) is clearly detected. After a  
calibration using the USNO B1 catalogue, we detected an important  
rebrightening from R=19.4 to R=18.4.
