Located in the centre of town, the Spanish-Arabic mansion Casa de Zafra is an iconic building in the well-known Albaicín neighbourhood. Today, the house contains an excellent Interpretation Centre. Strolling through this Moorish district is a pleasure, with its lively ambience, tapa routes and small Asian-style shops. Albaicín is certainly the essence of Granada; a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994, it has many beautiful buildings, such as the bridges over the Darro River, the city walls, religious buildings and the historical remains of Islamic and Christian civilisations. The famous Granada viewpoints are hidden in the maze of narrow streets, and include the Mirador de San Nicolás and the Ermita de San Miguel, from which there are spectacular views of the whole city, including the Alhambra.
The historic centre contains impressive buildings such as the Cathedral, the Capilla Real and the San Jerónimo Monastery, which symbolise Christianity in Granada and demonstrate the affection the Catholic Monarchs had for this beautiful Andalusian city. In Alcaicería, the ancient silk market, visitors can buy original gifts and souvenirs to take home. Just a few steps further on is the colourful Plaza Bib-Rambla, famous for its numerous flower stalls. Near the centre, various ancient Arabic baths have been reconstructed, preserving their Islamic features, which today offer a relaxing spa experience that takes you back to the Nasrid period.
The friendly and open character of the Andalusian people provides a special charm to the bars, restaurants, shops, shows and hotels in Granada. In the most populous squares, flamenco singers and dancers set out their stages, beating to the city’s lively rhythm. Flamenco shows are very popular; the Sacromonte district is especially famous for its flamenco venues. The passion and power that the artists display during their performance is incomparable.
However, Granada is not only the city; just a few kilometres away is the Sierra Nevada National Park, where walking routes pass through vast landscapes and the ski runs are covered with snow in winter. The Sierra Baza Natural Park and the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park, as well as others, are perfect destinations for all types of excursions. If you are looking for a sunny beach, the Granada coast is a wild and idyllic place, where rocky cliffs alternate with extensive beaches of fine sand. Peñón de Salobreña Beach, Calahonda Beach and Cantarriján Beach are some of the best known.
The Alhambra, which means “The Red Castle” in Arabic, is located on the top of Sabika Hill and is separated from the Albaicín and Alcazaba districts by the Darro River. Construction of the complex started in 889, when Granada was ruled by the Caliph of Córdoba, Sawwar ben Hamdun.
Its fascinating history, as well as its beautiful gardens and leafy surroundings, make this ancient palace an architectural treasure that is well worth visiting.
Granada is famous for its tasty and generously-sized tapas. Just order a beer in any bar or restaurant and your drink will be accompanied by a filling tapa, courtesy of the house. Dishes such as fried whitebait, croquettes, meatballs, migas and casseroles served with chips are the most popular. Don’t stay in the first place; try following the tapa route and try a few different ones.
