The Alhambra is not the only thing you will remember about Granada because this city has one of the most significant streets of Andalusia and is the famous Calderería Nueva street where you can enjoy wonderful places where you can spend a pleasant time tasting and tasting perfect teas.
The Calderería has existed since the reconquest or even before. Inhabited since the 11th century when there was an extension of Alcazaba Qadima and a reform of the old Zirí fortress.
The Calle Calderería Nueva or also known as “the street of the tea shops” is a street in the historic center and adopted this second name because of the number of locals you can find dedicated to serving all kinds of teas.
This famous place of Granada gets its name in ancient times, by the guilds that sold and repaired boilers and also took the opportunity to sell copper metal objects such as pots, saucepans or metal almireces.
In addition, this street will allow you to take a pleasant walk because it is located in a perfect enclave, between the lower part of the Albaicín and the historic center recalling the Moorish past that remains in the city. You will walk through small squares near this street full of charm and a humble and struggling past.
Not only will you be able to taste countless teas, but you will also enter one of the oldest and most authentic areas of the city of Granada.
