EL RINCÓN DEL HERRERO
The smell of embers and meats cooking in their juices.
The bellows keeps blowing. The embers have started to turn the metal a cherry colour, it's time to hammer. The blacksmith's work does not stop, but there is always a moment to taste an assortment of sausages and good kebabs in the heat of the forge.

LA TASCA DEL CAPATAZ
Breakfasts and beers, before and after the day's work.
The day is over. The masons put down their tools and leave the construction of the wall. The Puerta del Sol was raised with their hands, but there is still work to be done. La Puebla Real continues to grow and there are always finishing touches to attend to, but that doesn't mean one cannot have good breakfasts and beers to regain strength.
Breakfasts and beers
EL LLAGAR DE COVADONGA
The victory of the Sagrada Cueva lives on in the Arrabal.
Covadonga was the beginning and Granada will be the end. The old Covadonga knows this very well, and that is why for generations all the women in her family have borne her name. Don Pelayo's deed should not be forgotten, and even less so if it is evoked with a good pan of chorizo in cider and his famous empanadones.
Cider, pies and pans
EL CORRALILLO DE LOS VETERANOS
Between two songs they drink beer and eat hot-dogs.
Eating is a pleasure. And even more so when accompanied by the sounds of troubadours. In this corner of the Arrabal, in the shade of the wall, visitors and locals alike come together to enjoy the best food. Everyone here knows that the best food is that which is shared in a good atmosphere and in good company.
Hot dogs and beers
EL HOGAR DEL LEÑADOR
The best holm oak wood for the biggest grill of the Arrabal.
Just before dawn, the woodcutters are seen crossing the walls of La Puebla Real to go to the meadow. There they cut down shrub oaks and holm oaks, clean the branches and load the firewood to sell it at midday in the Arrabal. While they close the deals, it is normal to share some lunch on their grill in the heat of the embers.
LA CERVECERÍA DE VIVAR
The best beer dedicated to the great heroes.
The best beer dedicated to the great heroes of all times. Domingo, a retired soldier with a good palate, brews varieties of the best beers of the Meseta with local barley and trasmontana hops. Campeadora, Comunera, Ingeniosa, Genovesa, Condesa de Castilla and Manca de Lepanto... a taste of great deeds in the Cervecería de Vivar brewery.
LA PARRILLA DEL MERCADO
La Parrilla del Mercado, an obligatory stop for artisans and villains.
Stonemasons, blacksmiths, masons, tanners and carpenters gather daily at the Market Grill. There they have lunch and chat, enjoying grilled meat from the good local herds while sharing their knowledge with the young apprentices over a jug of beer.
Country burgers and tapas
LA TERRAZA DEL TUERTO MIGUEL
'The one-eyed Miguel pays great attention to the grilled meat he cooks.

LA TAHONA DE HONORATO
From the mill to the oven, the most tender loaves of bread.
Honorato kneads, cooks and bakes the bread. Every morning, hours before the cock crows, he begins the same ritual so that with the first rays of sunlight everyone can taste the best wheat dough in the region. Loaves of bread that make many people walk miles to El Arrabal to take it home.
Coca bread cakes
