City of grenada

There is so much to visit in Granada, but let’s start with the essentials: the Nasrid palaces of the Alhambra and Generalife gardens, the cobbled streets of the Arab quarter of the Albaicín, the gypsy quarter of Sacromonte, the beloved Realejo quarter in the heart of the city , the Royal Chapel where the Catholic Monarchs rest with their daughter Juana and her husband Felipe el Hermoso, the Cathedral, the Cartuja Monastery, the Sacromonte Abbey, the towns of the Alpujarras, the Costa Tropical, the thermal baths of Lanjarón, the prehistoric caves of Piñar, the Science Park, the International Festival of Music and Dance, etc…

A visit to Granada will never be complete if ‘tapeo’ is not practiced in its bars and taverns, in which varied and succulent dishes are offered as courtesy of the house with the drink, which is usually an ‘Alhambra’ beer or a wine from the Designation of Origin Granada. It is normally the innkeeper himself who chooses the tapa, and the customer accepts the choice with respect. In some bars it is possible to choose the tapa from a list.

Going for tapas with friends is one of the most deeply rooted customs in the capital of Granada. The proposal could not be more attractive: stroll through the city and contemplate its living history while enjoying snacks in picturesque places. From portions of cheese, sausages or Serrano ham to hot dishes typical of traditional Granada cuisine: migas with ‘engañifa’, tripe, broad beans with ham, poor potatoes, fried ‘pescaíto’, etc..


Alhendín es un pueblo muy recomendable para disfrutar del famoso tapeo granadino, su gente y sus bares te harán sentir como en casa, y no querrás marcharte. Igualmente en los pueblos cercanos, y por supuesto en Granada capital, podrás disfrutar de tapas y la mejor y más variada gastronomía andaluza. 

5El Cortijo se encuentra a las afueras del pueblo de Alhendín, pero puedes ir andando sin problema hasta el centro del pueblo en un bonito paseo de apenas 5 minutos, donde encontrarás supermercados, farmacias, bancos, bares, restaurantes, tiendas y todo tipo de servicios que puedas necesitar.
