The Big Move – Another Neighbourhood

This is more of a photo essay than a real blog post. Join us for a walk in our new neighbourhood!

As I said in the previous blog post, Lars and I moved to Churriana de la Vega, a lively small town, 7 kilometres to the west of Granada. This time we live only a few steps away from the main square, which boasts a couple of bars.

Our favourite bar is El Mosketero (or Mosquetero – we have seen both spellings). 20 different tapas await you here and they cost nothing! You pay for your drink and that’s it. Want an extra tapa? That’ll cost you 1,80 euros. A beer and a glass of excellent red wine cost 2,50 euros.

As seen in the pictures, some of our favourite tapas are a juicy burger, a sandwich with pork fillet, meatballs in tomato sauce, fried cod and toast with artichokes and anchovies.

By the way, why not try a “tinto de verano”. a very popular summer drink, consisting of red wine and lemonade? It has become our favourite drink!

In our next blog post, we will show you a lake that we had discovered not so far from here, untouched by tourism!

    Ah my Spain looks lovely anyhow! I was planning to retire there next year but my wife passed away and now not sure, still thinking. I was more into Castilla La Mancha south of Madrid and close to Granada as well. Enjoy it!

      We certainly do enjoy it here! Moving to Spain was one of the best things we have ever done.

    I googled your neighborhood after reading your last post. You have everything just down the street from you, in one direction or another. Love your photos.

      That’s one of the reasons we love it here!


Let us know what you think!
