Venue → Gastronomy and Leisure
Granada´s gastronomy is a devoted heir of the Arabic-Andalusian, with deep influences from the Moorish and Jewish cuisines. But also, the Castilian tradition has inspired Granada’s cooking since the moment of the Reconquest back in 1492, giving rise to a robust yet balanced mix of flavors and aromas absolutely irresistible to senses.
Besides, top-of-the-range natural ingredients, grown and bred locally, undoubtedly contribute to any gourmet's delight. Tapas, a small piece of (great) food served along with your drink absolutely free of charge in any bar around the city, represent an excellent example of how Granada’s cuisine has been able to make nourishment evolve into pleasure, bare food into fine art.
Also noteworthy, the presence of multiple teahouses in emblematic quarters like the Bajo Albaicín, a singular tradition derived from the Arabic origin of the city, where locals and foreigners gather in a quite relaxing atmosphere to taste delicious teas and Moorish pastries. Of special mention are the pubs and nightclubs that Granada offers to visitors, making Granada’s nightlife vibrant and exciting.
