El Hospital Real en Granada and its library
After the mad effervescence of Semana Santa, the only thing I wanted yesterday was to retire in a peaceful place where I could enjoy beautiful premises in the company of old books. El Hospital Real is one of my favorite places in Granada. Initially built by King Ferdinand in the XVth century to cure ill people and take care of orphans, the Hospital Real is today a major venue for exhibitions and concerts.
I always dreamt of setting up a fashion show in one its four patios. Wouldn't it be a perfect place ?
next to it, the library, la Biblioteca universitaria is an ideal refuge to read and write but also consult old editions
this atlas by Joan Riczo Oliva (XVth cent.) makes me dream of caravans in the desert and undiscovered islands.
the library is opened from monday to friday
8h30/9h to 20h30/21h
there is also a nice cafeteria in the patios
