Loja Granada Spain


This large, historic town is situated in the west of the Province along the A-329 54 km from Granada City.

Used as a trading post by the Phoenicians (who knew it as Tricoliar), inhabited later by the Muslims and considered 'the door and key to the Kingdom of Granada' by Queen Isabel. The ruins of the Alcazaba de Loja (fortress) can still be seen today and was, according to local legend, founded by Tubal - grandson of Noah.

During the 19th century two events took place that were to prove important milestones in the towns history, the first being the Farmers Rebellion in 1861 and the second being the appointment of General Narvaez under Queen Isabel II. Proof of his wealth and power can be seen in the 19th Century Palacio Narvaez that now houses the Loja Town Hall.

Present day Loja is a busy, vibrant town with a large commercial centre and many facilities, amenities and shops. Modern buildings sit side by side with historic monuments such as the aforementioned fortress aswell as various smaller points of historic interest including the Fountain of 25 Jets, the Jaufin gateway and the 16th Century bridge that crosses the river of Genil.
