The Castle in Velez de Benaudalla

Posted by maribel on 25/04/2013

Velez de Benaudalla lies on the banks of the river Guadalfeo flowing from  Las Alpujarras, between the Sierra de Lujar and the Sierra de Guajares. It retains much of its Moorish past with its Nasrid Gardens that are a subtle combination of water, trees and garden flowers.

Velez de Benaudalla also contains a perfectly preserved fortress and castle and the remains of a mosque.

The Nazarí Garden in Vélez de Benaudalla

Posted by maribel on 24/04/2013

The Nazarí Garden in Vélez de Benaudalla (Granada) is an exceptional example of Islamic garden of great historic value, enhanced by the fact that this is one of the very few gardens preserved in Andalucía (Granada’s Generalife being the greatest exponent of this art). Many professionals in this field consider the Garden of Vélez de Benaudalla the second most important of its kind, as it is now known as “Generalife Chico” (Small Generalife).

We’re going on Saturday 8th June!
