Here is my best explanation:

'spanish city' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'imposing area around a' is the subsidiary indication.

'imposing' becomes 'grand' (I've seen this before).

'area' becomes 'a' (maths abbreviation).

'around' is an insertion indicator.

'grand'+'a'='granda'

'granda' placed around 'a' is 'granada'.
