Tourist information

At the base of the Sierra Nevada hills, in the middle of the rivers Darro and Genil, is located one of the most colourful towns in Andalusia. As well as its outstanding Al-Andalus tradition, there are Renaissance architectural treasures and the most contemporary facilities, fit for the 21st century.

The entire town of Granada has been declared a national monument, in most part due to the homage of the fantastic Alhambra Castle, a distinctive Moorish citadel dating back to the 10th century. The Castle and its attractive gardens is the most explored historical monument in Spain, attracting millions of travellers from throughout the world each year – it’s simple to see why! Take the time to explore the entire complex; from the magnificent Generalife Castle with its spectacular backyards and water fountains to the Castle of Charles V, the Alcazaba, the court of the Myrtles, the bath of Comares, the Hall of Kings and so much more – this is a voyage back in time like no other.

Granada offers visitors the opportunity to uncover an original and abundant mixture of Spanish culture and Arab legacy, next to the contemporary, multicultural feel. The town also serves as an outstanding starting point to visit the rest of the province. In this bustling town, you can feast yourself on all things historical or relax out in one of the several central tapas bars, vibrant bars and open air cafés that can be discovered everywhere in the town’s heart.

The province is typified by its rugged wilderness, snow capped hills, the attractive Las Alpujarras area, whose medieval settlements sit within the foothills of the hills.This Sierra Nevada is part of the attractive tradition of Granada, and is covered with snow all year round. The tops of the Sierra Nevada rise over 3,000 metres high, terminating at the Mulhacen peak which has an altitude of 3,481 metres. The Sierra Nevada is a favourite ski resort of southern Spain.

Gastronomy

A nice opportunity to take pleasure in the festive ambience is Easter week, which has been designated of National Tourist Interest.
