Or to revel in the truly unique yearly carnival…

This is a unique carnaval in Andalucia Spain. Well worth the visit and the fun. Many people wear this mask around town. Quite freaky but also really entertaining. #realandalucia

But not too long ago, when the Moors and the Christians were playing the Games of Thrones, Alhama de Granada was a very strategic place.

It was the first town in Granada that fell to the Christians in 1482 which started the decline of the Moorish powers in Al-Andalus.

So as you can see, this is a town rich in history.

And everywhere you go, there are vestiges of Alhama de Granada’s story.

You can see it on the walls of the Iglesia del Carmen, a church with a turbulent history…

One of Alhama de Granada's attractions, the Iglesia del Carmen. #realandalucia

You can see it in the alleyways of the old town…

You can see it at the inquisition house a few meters from Iglesia de la Encarnacíon…

And have I mentioned that way all before these, the Romans were here too?

Oh yes. The Romans loved this place.

They especially loved the thermal baths.

They also built a bridge that continues to stand in all it’s glory to this day.
