Santa Fe Granada Spain

Details

Santa Fe is located just 11km west of Granada City in the heart of a fertile expanse of land known as Granada Vega. The area where the town now stands was originally a Roman camp with two main streets meeting at the centre, Cardus Maximus (now Calle Real) and Decamanus (now Calle de Cristobal Colon).

During the Conquest of Granada the site was used as a provisional camp for the Catholic army until, in 1491, the decision was made to construct a more permanent settlement. Towers were built and a wall was erected around the village with four gateways providing access. Now known as the Puertos de Granada, Jaen, Loja and Sevilla the original gateways can still be admired today and provide access to the towns main square the Plaza de España. An important town in Spains history Santa Fe was the setting for the signing of the Capitulaciones (the Treaty allowing Colombus to undertake his journey).

Although the economy is dependant on agriculture Santa Fe is much more than just a farming town. At its heart lies a lively, bustling centre with a modern outlook and a wealth of shops, restaurants and ameneties combined with a strong sense of its importance in Spanish history.
