Graena



This district is formed by the localities of Cortes, Graena, Lopera and Los Baños, all on the north side of Sierra Nevada and framed in a spectacular mountain scenery. It has two great tourist attractions, the cave houses and thermal spa baths in Graena, whose waters were recognized internationally in the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900. Its route becomes a stroll through history from the Bronze Age, the Roman period to the Arab settlement.
