Welcome Reception

The Welcome reception will be held on Monday 19 June at 19:00 at Carmen de los Mártires. Within walking distance of Alhambra, Carmen de los Mártires was originally a shrine, and later a Barefoot Carmelite convent established in 1492. This Carmen (traditional house with enclosed garden) is perhaps the city’s most interesting, not only on account of its size and stunning gardens, but also for the fact that many original architectural elements can be seen retained in a design dating from the 19th century. Various styles of garden can be seen in this Carmen: the French garden, English garden, romantic lake area, vegetable garden, the wood or maze, etc.
