When visiting Granada, you’ll work up an appetite climbing the staircases of the Alhambra or touring the winding streets of the Albaicín. Eating is serious business in Andalusia (Andalucía), and from tasting tapas to whipping up your own paella, Granada delivers with these essential foods and experiences.

Must-Try Dishes
Start off your day in the city with a typical Andalusian pastry called Suizo, a type of brioche served with butter and jam, or with the ever-popular chocolate and churros, often enjoyed on Sundays and holidays. Spanish and Moorish influences blend together in the classic dishes of Granada, like habas con jamón, a dish made from cured ham (Spanish) and broad beans (Moorish). Plato Alpujarreño, a favorite dish among locals, includes potatoes, fried eggs, Spanish jam, blood sausage, sweet peppers, and chorizo.

During the summer months, don’t miss out on remojón granaíno, a salad made with fresh oranges, spring onion, black olives, hard-boiled eggs, and salted cod. Of course any meal can be made better with a side of queso montefrieño (a local cheese), jamón de Trevélez (the favored ham of the royal family), and pan de Alfacar (a traditional bread baked in a Moorish oven).

Must-Do Experiences
  • Feast on Granada’s famously generous tapas and traditional dishes during a guided food tour of the best tapas bars in the Albaicín neighborhood.
  • Take a deep dive into the local food scene by sampling artisan wine, visiting a local market, and talking with neighborhood merchants in the old town.
  • See how Granada’s food culture differs from the rest of Andalusia on a multi-day tour to Seville, Granada, and Cordoba.
  • See the streets and landmarks of Granada illuminated at night while learning about flamenco traditions and visiting tapas and wine bars.
