The arabs named granada’s snowy mountain the Sierra Nevada, but they were not the first inhabitants. As early as 1300 BC, the small town of Monachil, 13km from granada, was settled by humans. The sierra Nevada mountains, close at hand, give it not only fertile land but also a beautiful winter landscape. Sierra Nevada is the southernmost ski resort in Europe. From the beginning of December to the beginning of may every year, the fine weather and excellent trails attract skiers from Europe and even the world.
Every year on January 18, the city of monachille celebrates the patron saint’s day of San Anton, an ancient and important festival chosen in January to protect people from the harsh cold of winter. An essential part of the festival is eating La Olla DE San Anton. It must be a very happy thing for us to sit together in the winter, eating hot stews and talking to each other.
