5TH C. CONVENT
Spending a night in the gardens of the Alhambra, among fountains, trees and large arched windows is the exclusive opportunity offered by this Parador, a former convent built by decision of the Catholic Monarchs.
This monumental ensemble proposes placid walks around the city for the guest, although the building itself invites you to discover a dreamlike interior, where Arabic and Christian styles mix. Its bedrooms offer exceptional views of the Generalife, the Secano gardens and the Albaicín, while the classical furniture and numerous portraits mark the decoration of the interior rooms.
Under the coffered ceiling of the dining room
and the freshness of the summer terrace `gazpacho andaluz` (cold tomato soup),
`tortilla de Sacromonte` (omelet) and `piononos de Santa Fe` (typical sponge
caked soaked in liqueur) are offered.
What to eat...
Fresh Andalusian gazpacho
You have wonderful vistas from the restaurant and from the terrace over the Generalife gardens, while you taste delicious dishes such as Sacromonte omelette, Granada beans with ham from Trévelez, and of course, the typical Andalusian `gazpacho` (cold soup of vegetables). All vitamins.
HOW TO GET THERE:
The Alhambra marks the urban setting, full of art and history, in which the Parador is located. After reaching Granada on the dual carriageway, access to the Parador is by the ring road, avoiding the city centre, after following the signs to Motril, Sierra Nevada and Alhambra.
