GRANADA-WORLD HERITAGE

Granada ( 270.000 inhab. ) is a city for wandering around and dreaming. The narrow streets and spacious gardens are full of religious fervour during the Holy Week of Easter and festivities in the Sacromonte caves. Located at the feet of the Sierra Nevada.

Due to the fact that it was the last Arab kingdom of the Península, it is also a city of great symbolic value. Its heyday came in 1238, when Mohamed Ben Nasar founded the Nazarie Dynasty, till Boabdill el Chico was obliged to hand over Granada to the Catholic Monarchs, who built new civil and religious monuments, and who are themselves buried in its Cathedral.

FOOD AN DRINK :

The Arab heritage is clear in the cuisine :

Beans with ham, alboronia, “papas a lo pobre”, Sacromonte omelette, San Anton stew, lamb with pomegranates and conventual desserts and pastries

Give him alms, woman, because there is nothing as bad as being blind in Granada.
