The kingdom of Nasrid cuisine
Eating at the Parador de Granada gives you the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive gastronomic experience in the Alhambra itself. A culinary proposal that, on a culinary level, is heir to the mixture of the different cultures that have passed through the ancient Nasrid kingdom over the centuries, with a special contribution from Arab cuisine.
A gastronomic dream of a thousand and one nights
As a complement to the traditional restaurant, El Almorí del Generalife is a gastronomic space with its own entity and a more informal menu with representative dishes from the different regions of Granada to share. Home-made cheeses, "cecina de Graná” (cured ham), crispy chicken in Ras-al-Hanout marinade, boiled and roasted octopus with alboronía (vegetables and paprika dish), Almadraba frigate tuna, tomato and thyme extra virgin olive oil, salmorejo (thick tomato soup), chicken breua, Iberian ham and tomato salaílla...
Type of kitchen
Traditional from Granada
Nasrid breua, remojón granadino (orange salad with local ingredients), monkfish in Mozarabic sauce, alpujarreño-style kid, piononos (sweets), cake from the convent of San Francisco.
The last frontier of Al Andalus
It is located at the end of the street named Calle Real de la Alhambra, within the grounds of Granada's most emblematic monument, and is surrounded by evocative gardens and fountains. The hotel has a dreamlike interior, with works of art and exceptional pieces of furniture decorating the cloister and the interior rooms. Enjoy the best local cuisine in the restaurant or the terrace: from Andalusian gazpacho, habas a la granadina (fava beans with artichokes), or piononos de Santa Fe, small spongy pastries drenched in syrup and topped with cream, from the nearby town of Santa Fe.
The Alhambra and the Generalife are just a stone's throw away from the Parador. This World Heritage Site is home to the Nasrid Palaces, the Alcazaba and the famous Court of the Lions. You'll get a magnificent view of the complex from the Mirador de San Nicolás in the heart of the Albaicín quarter, a network of streets with whitewashed houses atop a hill with Baroque churches and Islamic cisterns. Other treasures of the city include La Cartuja monastery, the Cathedral, the Arab Baths and the Science Park. And you surely won't leave without attending, at least one night, a zambra dance performance in a cave in the Sacromonte quarter.
