Huerto del Loro: The Best Views of Albaicin, Granada

Sometimes, to discover a real treasure, all you have to do is to look up!

That’s how I found Huerto del Loro.

In reality, the credit goes to the location of the apartment I found in Granada, thanks to which I found myself staying right under this local favourite.

If you don’t know about the place, you would have to get lucky to find it, or be told about it by locals – I’ve never seen it mentioned in any guides, and maybe that’s a good thing! Now allow me to introduce you and show you Albaicin from a bit different angle.

First – the location!

Huerto del Loro is a local pub that sits on the foothills of Sabikah Hill, right under Alhambra. The access there is not straightforward as you have to walk through Calle St Ana and take what looks like a dead-end road uphill.

Eventually, you will reach a big gate overgrown with ivy and climb the stairs to access the pub.

The pub isn’t massive, but there are plenty of seating options, including elevated bar chairs with tables. We visited shortly after they opened up in the afternoon and the place started filling up quickly.

The menu of drinks and cocktails is extensive, the service is super friendly (and they all speak English) and most importantly – the views are hard to beat!

They normally open at 8pm every day during summer, but in our case, they recently changed opening hours and we were there just after 4pm.

Below is a little virtual photo guide, followed by the details of the establishment.

Save it for your next trip to Granada!

Southern Spain Travel Planning Guide

Is it safe to drive in Spain?

YES! The roads in Southern Spain are generally in very good condition, with modern highways connecting the biggest cities. To rent a car, I highly recommend Discover Cars, which will get you the best deals on your car rental for your trip.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO DRIVE?

PUBLIC TRANSPORT — Southern Spain has a well-established and modern network of trains and buses. To get the cheapest bus or train tickets, take a look at Omio to find the timetables and prices.

DAY TRIPS — If you don’t like the hassle of using public transport, local travel companies offer many day trip options from almost all the destinations in Southern Spain. You can check them out here.

WHERE SHOULD I BOOK MY ACCOMMODATION?

BOOKING.COM — I have been using booking.com for all my trips in Spain and abroad, and have never had any negative experiences. Their reviews are very accurate and you get the best deals even on apartments, not just hotels.

ARE THERE LUGGAGE STORE OPTIONS IN THE CITIES?

YES — If you would like to leave your luggage behind to explore the city on your last day, before heading to the airport, you can use Radical Storage service, which lets you book luggage storage options in almost all the destinations in Southern Spain.

DO I NEED TO BUY A LOCAL SIM CARD FOR THIS TRIP?

YES – You can, of course, use your own card if you have roaming data available. If you want to avoid surprising extra charges from your operator, you can use a service like Airalo, where you can buy digital packs for e-sim cards, avoiding the hassle of sourcing local physical sim cards and extra roaming charges anywhere you go.
