the roof terrace

An internal staircase, accessible only from the apartment, reaches the unusually large and private roof terrace. The terrace is partially roofed, allowing ample shade, and has various tables and chairs. For sun worshippers, there are also loungers allowing day-long adoration, if necessary.

The views are incomparable, so wide that the mountain ranges surrounding the city are almost all in clear view. Below in the town can be seen the magnificent cathedral, together with the long tree-lined streets and squares of central Granada. There is also a fine view of the Alhambra (although you do have to stand on a bench to see it!)

The terrace is well planted with mediterranean plants, oleanders, aloes and orange and lemon bushes providing colour and texture. There are also pomegranate bushes, which give the house its name. A truly peaceful spot to relax, reflect and revive.
