  This tour was so fun! Rose was so down to earth and is so knowledgeable about the history of san jose. The food choices were amazing & the Mezcal was a good way to end the tour. Mexican food and tequila is always a good combination. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore San Jose. Thank you Rose and Rosalie :)

Tour Details

Explore the Flavors and Wines of Granada Spain!

November 8-14 2020

Granada’s Alhambra is an enduring symbol of seven centuries of Arab rule in Spain. The towers of the Moorish palace stand out against the distant backdrop of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada, a contrast that echoes the complexity of Granada’s cuisine. The city sits at a culinary crossroads, looking south to North Africa for sweet flavors and spices, north to the mountains for hearty fare, and west to the Atlantic and east to the Mediterranean for the bounty of the sea.

The gastronomy, craftwork and urban planning are influenced by its glorious past. Fountains, viewpoints and “Cármenes”, houses surrounded by typical gardens of this city, create unforgettable corners in the city. It is no surprise that one of its old neighbourhoods, the Albaicín, has been awarded the World Heritage designation, together with the Alhambra and Generalife.
