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!
