The street that links the city centre of Granada to the River Genil is called Carrera de la Virgen. This tree lined walkway is also home to the Virgen de las Angustias, Patron of Granada.
Located inside the Basilica this grand Spanish Baroque church began as a hermitage in the 15th century. Each year the city celebrates a floral offering in September at the church and also has a special mass on 26th December to request protection from Earthquakes for another year from the Virgen.
Granada is a seismic area which experiences tremors and small earthquakes occasionally.
At each end of the walkway there is a fountain, Fuente de las Batallas and Fuente de las Granadas making this a cool place to enjoy on warmer days.
This street is also home to the original shop Casa Ysla the most traditional place to buy Pionono cakes.
