Armilla Granada Spain

Details

Armilla, situated in Granada’s fertile plain, enjoys a Mediterranean climate, humid and temperate, with dry and warm summers and almost 3,000 hours of sun per year. Due to its proximity to Granada City, Armilla is a good place to spend the evening, to enjoy its bar terraces and to visit the capital. Within the district, there is an air base of the Air Force that includes a School of Helicopter Pilots. It also has the Feria de Muestras, in the old facilities of the sugar factory of Santa Juliana, which is used for conferences and shows.

The new Technological Park of Health Sciences also occupies part of the district. In the middle of its construction process, this complex is a public initiative of diverse administrations and institutions to turn Granada and its South belt into a vanguard of medical teaching, investigation and technology.
History

Its origin is even previous to the Roman domination of the area, but the first vestiges that are conserved are Arab and that is the time in which the history of Armilla starts. During the years of the Caliphate the canals of the fertile plain were built and the district began to bloom economically. The production of great cultivations and being a land of passage for the silk merchants granted it an outstanding role in the Kingdom of Granada. Although between the XI and XIII centuries there were in Armilla already important craftsmen, it did not reach great development until the end of the XV century. Its prosperity was broken by the war of Granada and turned into decay by the Moorish revolt. With the town depopulated and the fields of irrigated land devastated in 1574 it was repopulated by old Castilians.

Gastronomy
Traditional in the gastronomy of Armilla, is the San Antón pot, pumpkin pisto, stuffed aubergines, varied soups and fried beans with ham. Wild meat also forms many of the recipes of this town, with examples like rabbit ‘a la labradora’ and partridges with cabbage.
