Secrets of the Granada Sisterhood

This past week I was visiting a few fantastic Coral Gables Broker’s Opens by fellow RE/MAX agents and I passed by an unassuming little park called Granada Park.   The park is much more important than one might first guess as it is a representation of the relationship between the City of Coral Gables and the City of Granada in Spain.  These two Sister Cities have a special relationship as half the things in Coral Gables are named after Granada so every time someone drives through the Granada Entrance, the City of Coral Gables has to send  a Big Mac to the Mayor of Granada, Spain.

Ok so not really, but it’s my blog so I can say whatever I want.  In reality the relationship is very cool and has resulted in this beautiful While Marble Pomengranate, which was a gift from Jose Torres Hurtado, Mayor of Granada, Spain.  The statue was created in Spain and just to make it perfect, it is surrounded by Antique Cobblestones donated by Emma Dolores Broad and Sara Marlee Broad in May of 2008.

Here are the pictures, enjoy!  As always click for the bigger pic!

Where else besides Coral Gables?
