For centuries Granada has been known throughout the world as the Jewel of Andalucia. The one city in Spain which everyone must see. Surrounded by the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains. it is to this area that the first humans crossed from Africa into Europe over one million years ago.
Granada was originally built on two hills, the Alhambra and Albaicin, where two and half thousand years ago the Eligyrge settlement was built. Today the Albaicin is a maze of twisting tumbling narrow streets and alleys, with houses piled high one on top of each other and a profusion of plants giving way to views of the Alhambra palace opposite. Each time we walk through this maze we seem to discover another gem and catch an orange falling off a tree.
The two hills are served by a network of mini buses that leave from the Plaza Nueva. Who needs a tour guide when you can spend hours discovering the delights for yourself.
The city itself is a paradise for the explorer shopper and sightseer, with it's narrow streets and hidden gardens and buildings. With an old Arab quarter and the smell of spices and incense you can imagine the time before the moors were defeated.
Parking for Casa Eras is nearby in the village.
