Miscellaneous / Is Cadiz a good place to go after Granada?
« Last post by hudson on May 16, 2017, 11:54:08 PM »
I am planning to stay in Granada for 5 days and then go to Cadiz for 3 days before going to Morocco on the Ferry.

What is the best way of getting from Granada to Cadiz?

Does anyone know good places to eat and drink in Cadiz?

How do you pronounce Cadiz?
I buy my oil from an English couple who have really good oil.
I buy it from them directly but I believe they can ship it anywhere in Europe.

They have a website here.

I have a restaurant in the UK. We us a lot of olive oil. I have been told that it is possible to buy very high quality olive oil direct from the producers. I will be in Granada next week and I wonder if anyone knows a good place. I don't speak any Spanish.
What to do in Granada / Re: 2 night trip to Granada for our anniversary.

Here are a few suggestions:

BREAKFAST: Café Fútbol on Plaza Marian a Pineda. It is a famous Spanish bar with the locals and famous for its chocolate con churros or simply tostadas.

LUNCH/DINNER: Cunini is famous for fish and shellfish and is in Plaza Pescaderia just round the corner from the catedral . It is famous for its tapas in the middle of the day but also as an evening restaurant.

LUNCH/DINNER: Mirador de Moraymar -  a typical "carmen" in the Albaicin ( A carmen is a house with a walled garden and views of the Alhambra.
The specialty of Granada is "tortilla sacromonte" probably best avoided unless you are feeling adventurous (it contains brains, testicles, red peppers and peas), quite tasty but Granadainos wouldn't touch it with a barge pole

TAPAS: Casa Julio is a typical small tapas bar off Plaza Nueva - on Calle Hermosa
Nearby is the Antigua Bodega Castañeda - a traditional tapas bar. There are two sides to the bar so make sure you go in through the entrance on Calle Elvira / Calle Almireceros This bar is famous for its drink "calicasas" which is a potent mixture of sherries, vermouth, etc.

Another traditional tapas bar is Bar Espadafor at the end of the Gran Via. Amazing ceramic mural. This is the bar associated with Bodegas Espadafor who make the alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (grape-apple juice, etc.)

TAPAS:  Walk along behind the statue of Queen Isabel and Christopher Columbus (he's presenting her with a list of all the ships, sailors, etc. that he needs for his journey to discover America), continue straight on and eventually you will come to Calle Molinos. Just behind this is CAMPO DE PRINCIPE which is just below the Alhambra on the other side and there are excellent tapas bars on the right.

TAPAS: The area of Calle Navas is a good area for tapas and here you'll find one of the most famous tapas bars in Granada  - Los Diamantes. It's small but well worth the wait and squash.

WALKS: Here is a page I've put with walks to take in the sights:
One of the nicest areas in Granada is Paseo de los Tristes (where they used to carry the hearses along before taking them up to the cemetery at the Alhambra) and the third one is a circular one.

An excellent place to stay with great views of the Alhambra and very good reviews is this one.

What to do in Granada / 2 night trip to Granada for our anniversary.
« Last post by Susan and Peter on February 20, 2017, 10:57:54 AM »
My wife and I are staying in Nerja on the coast during the winter. It is our aniversary on the 7th of  March and we would like to visit Granada for 2 nights.

I am not sure if we should take the bus or the car.

My wife likes seafood and we would like to go to a restaurant which does good paella. We are both fairly fit and we like walking. Are there any good walks around the city?

I have been told that it is complicated to book tickets to the Alhambra do you have any advice. Is a guided tour a good idea?

Where is the best place to stay? I have been told it is good to be near Plaza Nueva. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. 
What to do in Granada / Re: Mirador de San Nicolas

A mirador is a view point with a panoramic view.

Mirar in Spanish means "to look".
So a mirador is a "looker" or a place where you look from.

The Mirador de San Nicolas has a wonderful panorama of the Alhambra.
It is in the Albaicin and is across a valley from the Alhambra.
It is free, it is just a public square.
