Food & Drink in Granada

At Carmela, you'll find creative dishes such as made-to-order tortilla and cured ham croquettes - guaranteed to make your mouth water. Meanwhile, at Chikito the tapas speciality is snails, with the adjacent restaurant offering more hearty options such as oxtail stew and pork medallions.

Semana Santa


Semana Santa (Easter Week) is one of the most important events in the Spain's religious calendar.

The procession is lit by bonfire and ends in the early hours of the morning.
