Alhambra Slowhomes is located on Cuesta de Gomérez, 41. The house is included in the heritage protection area of the Alhambra and Generalife. It’s on a pedestrian street, right under the Torre de la Vela and Torres Bermejas, at the border of the forest that separates the city from the Alhambra. Its main facade faces the historic Cuesta de Gomérez and is just away meters from the popular Puerta de Las Granadas (Pedro Machuca, 1536) that gives access to monument area. Down the street is Plaza Nueva which concentrates commercial and tourist activity in the city.

The building is listed on the architectural catalog for the protection and planning  of the Alhambra. We are unable to date its exact origin, but the building design today responds to its residential occupation in the late nineteenth century. A throughout restoration has been carried out in 2012, respecting the spatial organization and taking care of details, stairs, façades and most significant decorative elements.
