Fascinating Fact, number 568: The Pomegranate

The Spanish word for pomegranate is granada. Was Granada named after the fruit or the fruit after the town?


Well, frankly, no one cares much.


But the fruit appears on the city's (did I just call it a town?) coat of arms.


Walk around the place and you see them everywhere, from the real things in the market places to stone, glass, and wooden sculptures.

I haven't eaten one here yet. Unforgiveable, and soon to be addressed.
