Chapiz House in Granada - Casa del Chapiz History and Information
Turn left at the end of Paseo de los Tristes, and a little further along, at the crossing where the Camino del Sacromonte begins, two mansions are situated which are known as Chapiz House.
Chapiz House belonged to two Arab families who became new Christians when the city was conquered. They were called Lorenzo el Chapiz y Hernan Lopez el Feri.
The top part of the house cantains offices which cannot be visited, but worth a look is the garden with a beautiful view of the Alhambra and Albaycin and two lovely patios.
You can also have a look at the library if you are fond of Islamic culture.
To the right of the Cuesta del Chapiz up the Camino del Sacromonte are the flamenco shows at night in the Caves of Sacromonte.
Just before Casa del Chapiz is the Palacio de los Cordova which is also an interesting place to visit.
