An ideal place to discover everything Alhama de Granada has to offer.Alhama de Granada is located 50 km from the center of Granada. If you are looking for a quiet weekend or an exceptionally beautiful and traditional place to visit, then Alhama de Granada is a suitable choice.

Alhama de Granada is a place that has inspired poets and travelers through the centuries. The romantic traveler Teofilo Gautier described the town as 'an eagle's nest, hanging from a huge rock or peak'.

With a population of about 6000 inhabitants, the village has retained its traditional charm. The wandering through Alhama, the carefully preserved Moorish quarter, lets you go back in time. .

Located above a gorge, surrounded by fertile fields and a hilly landscape of almond and olive groves, the whole area is a delight to the eye.

Because of the rich history and the beautiful, almost impregnable location Alhama de Granada was considered one of the pearls in the crown of the Nasriden, an Islamic dynasty that ruled the area of ​​Granada and Malaga.

The name Alhama is derived from the Arabic word - Al-Hammam - which means 'thermal baths'. Since Roman times the healing properties of the thermal water of Alhama have been recognized and sought after. During the period of the Reconquista, Christians paid large sums of money to take some of the water. .

The takeover of the Moorish Alhama by the Christian troops in 1482 came as a blow and caused the beginning of the war in Granada, which ended ten years later with the expulsion of the Moors from Andalusia.

There is ample evidence to suggest that the Moors had a special predilection for Alhama. After the Moors were expelled from the city, Abu Al-Hasan - the Moorish ruler of the time - uttered the words 'Ay de mi Alhama'. Today it is still used in Spanish to express that you regret something.

The best view of Alhama is the impressive Tajo ravine, which you can find behind the Iglesia del Carmen. As a result of limestone cliffs that have been carved over the past thousands of years, there are numerous hiking trails and sights within the Tajo itself.

When you enter the gorge, you will find clearly marked hiking trails that will lead you past the ruins of old flour mills, centuries-old wash stones and various local attractions: important places that have to do with the battle of Alhama and with the local folklore, and even a small chapel marking the spot where according to legend a Christian knight was miraculously rescued from a 150-meter high fall. Most are clearly marked and marked.

The river also offers some fantastic places to swim during the summer months.

If you have a lot of energy, you can walk through the gorge from the narrower Embalse to los Bermejales (there are two - see below) - you can follow the route here.

The main square of Alhama, just across the road, offers a number of good restaurants and tapas bars. Restaurant La Seguiriya is recommended. You can eat the best tapas at the nearby Bar Tigres, at Plaza de la Constitución.

An increasingly popular and free option are the hot tubs located next to the official spa. The thermal water comes from a cave and has formed a series of natural baths - each with their own temperature, which flow into the ice-cold river that runs parallel to it. It is a fantastic way to relax here, especially after a walk in the gorge.

When the hotel is open, you can also swim in the outdoor pool that is fed by the thermal waters. This is more than worth a visit and costs only € 6 for the whole day.

Near
If you want to cool off during the hot summer months, then Bermejales is more recommended. This lake is only 12km away from the center of Alhama. The Bermejas lake offers sandy beaches, safe swimming opportunities and a wealth of water sports. The lake is a popular place for locals during long, hot summer evenings, where you can have a barbecue and camp on the waterfront.
