Granada

Granada

GRANADA IS UNIQUE

"The uniformed visitor will find an incredible variety of forms, scenery, light and smells, along with the experience that Granada is the capital of a kingdom with its own art and literature. In this city you will find a curious mix of Jewish Granada and Moorish Granada, both of which were apparently blended by Christianity, but which nevertheless are alive and unvanquished. The monumental mass of the cathedral (which is the great Imperial and Roman stamp of Charles V) cannot avoid the small shop of the Jew who prays in front of an image made with the silver of the the seven-armed candelabrum, just as the tombs of the Catholic Monarchs have not escaped the crescent moon that appears on the chest of the finest sons of Granada from time to time. The fight continues in the shadows, expressionless. Well, not exactly without expression as there are two palaces that still stand on the red hill: the Alhambra and the Palace of Carlos V. They continue the fight to the death that beats inside each Granada native." - Federico García Lorca.

 

Granada is a monument city that imposes its character through a variety of styles. In addition to the Alhambra, you should also visit the Cathedral and the Capilla Real (Royal Chapel), both of which are located just a few metres away from our hotel. We also recommend you visit the Monasterio de la Cartuja (Granada Charterhouse), the Monasterio de San Jerónimo (Monastery of Saint Jerome) and the Parque de Ciencias (Science Park). But perhaps the biggest appeal to visitors is the city's hidden corners.

 

Visit Plaza Bib-Rambla and enjoy pleasant terraces and colourful flower stalls. Head to the nearby Plaza Pescaderia and Plaza Romanilla, and circle the Cathedral by passing through Plaza de la Pasiegas and Plaza de Alonso Cano. And make sure to visit the old silk bazaar, known as La Alcaiceria, which is a narrow street full of charming shops dedicated to the sale of handcrafted items.

 

HISTORY

The city of Granada was founded by the Romans under the name of 'Illibris'. Later, after the invasion of the peninsula by the Muslims in the 8th Century, the city was given its current name of Granada. The Catholic Monarchs conquered the city in 1492, thus completing the 'Reconquista' of the Iberian Peninsula for Christianity. During the seige of the city, Queen Isabella I of Castile received Christopher Columbus and granted him everything he needed to set forth on his journey to the West Indies.

 

CULTURE

Granada is Lorca's city; a city "open all year". Whatever date you choose to visit, there are always activities available for your enjoyment. There are renowned events on offer such as the International Music and Dance Festival, the International Jazz Festival, the Hocus Pocus Magic Festival and the Tango Festival in addition to many more events on the city's cultural calendar. Some of the city's most famous celebrations are Easter Week (Semana Santa), which was declared a Fiesta of International Tourist Interest, the Corpus Christi Fair and the Day of the Cross.

 

THE PEOPLE

It's not an exaggeration to say that one of Granada's defining qualities is its "University City" status which means it is a city that never sleeps. Without a doubt, one of the city's main, driving economical forces - along with tourism - is the university. Granada is one of the most popular tourist destinations for people studying Spanish, partly due to the friendly locals who are outgoing and good-natured.

 

GASTRONOMY

Granada and Andalusia's gastronomy is rich and varied. It's an excuse in itself to visit this city. Granada has a huge number of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy delicious dishes, including "migas" (a breadcrumb dish), "remojón" (bread soaked in milk), broad beans with ham, Sacromonte omelette, "gazpacho" (a cold soup) and much more. You can also discover the art of tapas in Granada: bars offer a free tapa with each drink in order to provide a demonstration of their cooking. The Albayzin, Campo del Principe, Realejo, Plaza de Toros (bullring square) and the central area are particularly good spots where you can enjoy this experience.
