Magical Granada

There are few cities on earth like it. Granada -  fascinating and rich in history with the pride and experience of an old sage. Having survived the ages, the various conquests and wars, having been under Roman, Muslim and Catholic rule, maintaining its warm and silent beauty is nothing short of a miracle.

There is something deeply moving about this city that will invigorate the senses with all its intricate detail - its narrow, cobbled streets, warm friendly people, and bustling activity. Granada can be experienced once or many, many times. There is a multitude of treasures to explore here. As a gathering place for scholars, artists and poets, Granada continually reinvents itself to integrate the new with its Moorish roots and its Catholic past - all set within its contemporary Spanish cultural backdrop.

Take in the sights...the Alhambra, the Albayzin, the Arab Quarter, Sacromonte, the Cathedral. Savour the wide range of culinary delights (the free tapas culture, North African kebabs and tea houses, to name just a few) and make sure you take some time to digest it all from the Mirador de San Nicolas, in quiet reflection at the Mosque, or while relaxing in the pool at the Arabic baths. found here. There are many parks and sidewalk cafes for rest and relaxation. Like in other parts of the Mediterranean, the people here are welcoming and social. They can be seen during lunch or after work at one of the many, many tapas bars, where guests often spill onto the streets and town squares.

Come and explore the magic of Granada!

Our Hotel

This 16th century noble house has been skilfully restored into a beautiful hotel with fifteen guestrooms. El Ladron de Agua, meaning "The Water Thief", is taken from the title of a poem by Juan Ramon Jimenez in Olvidos de Granada and is a showcase for local and regional art.

Our Legacy

On his visit to Granada, Juan Ramon Jimenez was taken by Granada's beauty and wrote a poetry collection drawing on his many Grenadine experiences; a collection now housed in the hotel library.
