Fuente de Las Granadas: Riverside Exploring in Granada

Fuente de Las Granadas: Riverside Exploring in Granada

The riverside of Genil in Granada offers many wonderful places to explore, including tranquil parks, cute cafes and water features. Fuente de las Granadas is one that you shouldn’t miss, if you’re visiting Granada.

Designed by Grenadian Ramiro Megías, the Fuente de Las Granadas is not merely a decorative element, but a testament to the fusion of cultures that has shaped Granada’s identity over centuries.

If you visit in late autumn, the trees around the fountain will show their best golden colours, offering you a spectacular photo opportunity.

Fuente de Las Granadas: Marvel of a Fountain

The fountain was inaugurated in 2007, and pays tribute to the pomegranate fruit, a symbol of fertility, prosperity, and unity, which is prominently featured in the fountain’s design.

There are other symbolic elements incorporated into the design: the four most important geographical features of Granada (Sierra Nevada, La Vega, Darro River and Genil River), and the motif of a half-naked woman carrying a grenade in her hand and looking toward the Fountain of Battles .

The fountain is special not only due to its size (11 meters high by 15 meters in diameter), but also the intricate and ornate design. The fountain is built entirely of bronze and cast in the Moliné Segovia Foundry.

I walked towards the fountain through the pedestrian zone at Plaza de Bibataubin and it felt like a grand finale to the beautiful tree-shaded walk.

The fountain just seems epic in comparison to any other water features you will see in Granada, and it’s a beautiful living testament to Granada’s multicultural past and architectural brilliance.

If you find yourself in this part of Granada, I think you will love the stroll through the pedestrian zone too, and very close to the fountain you can find another little gem by the riverside – Kiosko Las Titas (I included some photos in this article).

Enjoy a short photo tour below! At the end of the article you will find details about the location of the fountain.
