Alhama de Granada is a town in the province of Granada, the name is derived from the thermal baths located there, which are called الـحَـمّـة al-hammah in Arabic.

The Alhama de Granada Castle is located in the town center of Alhama, right next to the Carmen Church and the Pila de la Carrera Fountain, opposite the town hall. The castle is now privately owned.

We spent a lovely day chatting, going for a meal at Maison de Diego, cod with garlic and tomatoes yum, yum, and cheesecake for afters.
