Food Scene
Very nice grilled meats and seafood. The grilled vegetable plate is a must. In the warm months the indoor/outdoor feel of the space as well as the homegrown produce is inviting and sumptuous.

Benjamin is an excellent bar owner and a world class ham slicer. That may sound odd, but if you want to truly enjoy ham(jamon), then the way it is cut and presented makes all the difference. Benjamin(also affectionately called Benjamon) is a licensced and award winning ham cutter. Also offers sliced ham for take away.

Sightseeing
If you are interested in the history of Alhama de Granada...which is fascinating...you simply must visit the CIAG. There is a small entry fee but it is well worth the few Euros. A stop here and a visit to the local tourism office are a must for anyone visiting Alhama de Granada.

The Alhambra Palace and Gardens.
The Alhambra is one of the busiest and most spectacular sites in our area and even all of Spain. During the summer months it is usually necessary to book tickets at least a month, sometimes longer, in advance. The tickets are inexpensive but must be booked through the official site.
Τι να πάρετε μαζί σας
Bring a fleece or warm sweater.
I know this sounds odd, but our evenings can be quite cool, even in summer! Our village sits at almost 1000m of elevation so we are basically a high desert type environment. That means 30-40C degree(85-105F) daytime temps and 15-25C degree(58-77F) evening and nighttime temps.
Έθιμα και πολιτισμός
Take a siesta!! You'll need it.
One of the best ways to adjust to the time change and the local customs is to have a big lunch then take a Siesta! The whole town essentially shuts from 2pm-5pm and no-one really goes out in the evening till after 8pm. In the wintertime this adjusts a bit. In the evening(9pm-2am) the local restaurants, cafes, and bars are quite lively and you will see whole families out and about enjoying the local ambience and cooler temps.
