It was an easy 10 minute walk west of the central square with lots to look at along the way. We passed 2 old churches, La Merced and Xalteva, and just passed the latter we found Doña Elba cigars. We were greeted at the door and asked if we spoke English or Spanish and then we were told that even though it was a Sunday, there was a guy there who would show us how cigars were made. We were the only ones in the shop and had a good one-on-one with a cigar roller and a translator. The man rolled a cigar in front of us while the other gave us the play by play in English. After he had finished rolling, he asked all 3 of us what kind of cigar we liked and rolled one for each of us with a different combination of leaves. We were blown away but there was more! He then asked if we wanted to roll our own. Keep in mind we hadn't paid any money nor were we asked to pay. I rolled a cigar, pressed it and he finished it properly and gave it to me with a plastic sleeve to keep it for later. We smoked our cigars in rocking chairs in their open air salon. Best part of our stay in Granada. We left a good tip and bought a box of cigars for US$25.
