The Hotel Aurea Catedral 4* is made up of seven buildings in Granada's old quarter. One of them is a listed Castilian stately home from the 16th century that features an internal courtyard with a Nasrid fountain. The main building is decorated with neo-Pompeian paintings on its main façade.
The hotel also has a spectacular archaeology room housing a significant part of Granada's historic legacy. From the Romans to the Catholic monarchs, via three Arab periods, the archaeological artefacts found here testify to the city's evolution from its origins.
The current building forms a part of the Abulaci neighbourhood, which extends from Granada Mosque to the Alhóndiga de los Genoveses. Along with the Gelices district, it comprised the centre of the medina, bringing together noble and commercial areas.
The hotel's interior design is dedicated to Federico García Lorca. Its corridors and bedrooms are inscribed with verses from his famous works, such as Canciones (1921-24), Romancero Gitano (1924-28), Llanto por Ignacio Sánchez Mejías (1935) and Cantares populares. It's an authentic tribute to the most widely read Spanish poet in history.
