Chana

Dine on tapas, beer and wine with the locals, see an old industrial icon and relax in the park of this low-key suburb of Granada.

Chana is named after a famous old farmhouse called “La Chana,” which is Arabic for “Paradise.” This once rural and fertile area has slowly become part of Granada’s urban area and now sits on the northwestern edge of the city.

As you approach Chana from the center of Granada, you’ll first reach a small area between Carretera de Malaga and Calle Sirena. This part of Chana is known for its great selection of quality tapas bars. So while here, you may as well sample some of the best tapas that Granada has to offer. Do as the locals do by ordering a table full of irresistible seafood, meat and vegetable dishes and combine them with a glass of local beer or wine.

Discover a slice of history and see part of the region's agricultural roots by taking a walk around the ruins of the Azucarera San Isidro. Having been the sugar refinery for the local sugar beet farmers for over a century, the “azucarera” fell into disuse when the city closed in on it. Today the haunting old shells of these buildings offer an atmospheric glimpse into the golden years of agriculture in Grenada.

Adopt to the slower pace of life in Southern Europe and stroll through beautiful Almunia de Aynadamar Park. Wander among the leafy trees and well tended flower beds of this tranquil park and take a seat on a bench in the shade in the heat of the day. Admire the fountain and indulge in some more local treats at the tapas bar in the center of the park. The nearby Plaza Asociación de la Prensa is a scenic square laid out in a geometric pattern and worth a visit too.

Delve into the nightlife of Chana at the funky Sala El Tren (“The Train Hall”) concert hall next to a railway. From its graffiti-covered exterior to its dark and atmospheric interior, the hall oozes pop culture. With good acoustics and a wide range of acts on offer, El Tren is popular with many music lovers. Check the Chana events calendar to see what’s on during your visit and dance the night away with the locals.
