Hotel San Francisco
This is Spain's most popular Parador and reservations usually have to
be made months in advance.
The Parador Granada is part of a palace and mosque built between 1332 and 1354 which was later converted into a Franciscan convent with a charming tiled patio remaining from this conversion.
Part of the building was the former chapel where the kings of Spain were buried until their remains were moved to the Royal Chapel where they now lie.
The interior of the Parador merges the Arabic and Christian styles with classic furniture, several portraits, engravings, embroideries etc. The bedrooms are all different and offer views to the famous buildings that make up the remarkable Alhambra site.
The dining room has a coffered ceiling and serves local and international
dishes. Meals can be taken on the terrace. There is a separate gluten free menu.
The Albaicin neighbourhood is interesting. This used to be the Arab silk market but now is small streets with shops selling local handicrafts.
A very interesting day is to drive to the region of La Alpujarra and visit its villages. These include Lanjaron which has a famous spa, then Carataunas followed by Trevelez which is the highest village in Spain.
Various religious and cultural festivals take place in Granada:
Easter and Corpus Christi when there are processions through

|We had such a great time at the Parador! Our room was very nice, and always maintained properly during our 4 night stay. The history and location of the Parador are so unique and impressive that it is truly a must visit hotel/museum. Also, the service at the front desk ranks as high as any I have experienced. The concierge's advice on restaurants was outstanding, steering us to where the Spanish eat (Diamantes and Bodega Castaneda).|
