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.

In the heart of the Alhambra
The Parador de Granada occupies what was the Nasrid Palace of Los Infantes, which was converted by the Catholic Monarchs into the first Christian monastery in the recently conquered Alhambra and selected to house the monarchs’ tomb.
The original patio, converted into a cloister, is still conserved, as are the Arabic room and the qubba, which offers a magnificent view over the Generalife through which the royal canal passed, while under the Cúpula de Mocárabes the provisional tombs of the Catholic Monarchs can still be seen. The Parador is also home to the Arab bath houses of the palace, which were discovered in 1949.
