GRANADA: THE CENTER AND THE REALEJO

 

Modern 21st century buildings alongside old churches built upon even older mosques, and the old souk (alcaiceria) next to Granada’s imposing Renaissance cathedral and the gothic Royal Chapel which houses the remains of Isabel I and Fernando (The Catholic Monarchs) as well as those of their daughter Juana and their son in law Felipe. Granada's first high school (La Madraza) is a few meters away from busy Gran Via de Colón. Behind the Triunfo gardens Granada's first hospital is home to the University's headquarters. From the gardens along the river Genil you can access the Realejo, once the Jewish quarter, packed with an array of beautiful churches, palaces and museums. And here and there quiet squares everywhere and the relaxing sound of the ubiquitous water from the countless fountains.
