“We will return to Granada, we will return to the Casa Morisca, where we stayed.”
They have left Granada, enamoured with the city as well as with the hotel where they stayed for the weekend. We are referring to Catalan travellers that were dazzled by the city, but also by the hotel where they stayed: a house built in the Morisco style from the end of the fifteenth century with a Morisco façade and a number of authentic architectural elements, that was restored with such zeal that the architect responsible for the work, Carlos Sanchez from Granada, was worthy of the Europa Nostra Award for the delicacy and excellence of his work.
Once they were back in Barcelona, the travellers, captivated by the Alhambra(which they could see from the window of their bedroom) and the hotel located on the slope of Victoria opposite the palace city(the Alhambra complex), hurried to write their friends in Granada: “We will return to Granada but we will return to the Casa Morisca where we stayed because there the perception of the city is different, as if the visitor were imbued with another feeling.”……..
The Catalan travellers will return to Granada, to the hotel with its hall and patio with a small pool in the Morisco style, with porticoes above Tuscan columns made with stone from the Elvira mountains and white marble, with its windows from which you can see the Alhambra, while the guests fantasize about those stories that romantic travellers wrote in the past for example Washington Irving and some Spanish romantic writers.
