Granada is a city that captivates the senses. The sight, with impressive
monuments such as the Alhambra, the Cathedral or the landscapes contemplated
from the viewpoint of San Nicolás. The smell with the blossom perfumed streets
of the neighbourhood of Albaicín. The hearing with the flamenco celebrations of
the Sacromonte. Its history through the touch of the millenian stones and the
taste with its cuisine and its tapas. City of kings, Granada is a lot more that
can be said.
Along with the capital and forming part of the Granada district you can find a number of towns linked by their history to the city of the Alhambra. Places that share their patrimonial wealth and arise in an environment characterized by the green lines of “choperas” and the carefully cultivated fields. Villages like Chauchina, Santa Fe, Fuente Vaqueros (village where Federico García Lorca was born) or Cijuela. The tradition says that in this village the king Alhamar, founder of the Granada kingdom, directed the repairs of the canal system and the irrigated land.
The archaeological remains that date from the prehistoric times to the Muslim period link the towns of Vegas del Genil, Cúllar Vega or Churriana de la Vega.
