Granada offers visitors a blend of old and new with dynamic culinary and arts scenes, ancient buildings and beautiful mountains.
The city’s famed architecture is a major draw for many visitors. Start your tour in the streets of the Albaycin, the city’s old Muslim district, where you can admire centuries-old mosques and churches. Visit the Baroque-style Cartuja Monastery where you’ll find paintings by Juan Sánchez Cotán, a Spanish Baroque painter best known for his still lifes.
Art lovers will also appreciate the collection of paintings by acclaimed abstract expressionist artist José Guerrero held at the Centro José Guerrero. To learn more about another famous native, visit the nearby Federico Garcia Lorca Museum (Casa Museo Federico Garcia Lorca de Valderrubio). This museum celebrates the life of one Granada’s most famous poets and was once his home.
Younger visitors to Granada will enjoy the interactive exhibits, planetarium and butterfly garden at the Science Park (Parque de las Ciencias).
Along with an appreciation for art, Granada also places importance on its culinary scene. Many city establishments serve small plates of tapas for free when you buy a drink. Find many such tapas bars on Calle Panaderos, which leads off Plaza Larga, and Calle Elvira.
Granada sits along the Genil River, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The mountains provide attractions in both summer and winter. The highest peak is Mulhacen, which measures 11,411 feet (3,478 meters). Go trekking in the summer when the valleys offer a cooler climate to the Andalusian heat that nearby Cordoba and Seville experience. A ski resort, which hosted the FIS Alpine World Ski Championship in 1996, opens in the winter months.
Granada’s narrow and winding streets make driving in the city difficult. Getting around is easiest on foot as the major attractions are closely grouped. Alternatively, catch the red and white Alhambra Bus; this service stops at most of the places you’ll want to visit.
Best was its great location and views over the city. Also proximity to the Alhambra and gardens Room was modern but very cold lighting and not very well designed bathroom. Hot tub in the middle of the room made distorted the potential of a nice space
The hotel is nice and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Great location, close to all main attractions. The only observation is that the ironing table that was provided during our stay wasn't in good condition the padding was basically gone. Should buy new padding boards, this is a small investment ...
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Excellent location. Super clean. Overall a very high-end hotel. Highly recommended to all who are visiting Granada.
It was a beautiful place in a terrific location with a great view. The windows were double thick so you couldn't hear any noise from the street. The windows also had some kind of coating on them so you could see out but people in the street couldn't really see inside all that well.
New and nicely appointed. Location is very good. Next to Alhambra but away from the busyness of city Center. Good food in the restaurant
Our experience at the Parador de Granada was stellar! Absolutely perfect and we were sad to have to leave after only 3 nights. The staff would stop at nothing to make our stay there perfect and the room and grounds were breathtakingly perfect. We cannot wait to have the chance to return to Granada ...
