“Recuerdas de la Alhambra”

The Alhambra, the Albaicin and the setting

The crowds and the inaccessability of the city cen...

GRANADA must have one of the most spectacular settings of any city in Spain, perhaps Europe, maybe even beyond. It lies on a wide, fertile plan with the permanently snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada forming an impressive backdrop. It's these snow-capped peaks which have guaranteed the...

“Granada”

published 19/01/2004

Beautiful city, good transport links.

Not much English spoken by locals

To get to Granada in Andalucia, the cheapest thing to do is score a cheap flight off the internet to traditional loud-mouthed Brit destination, Malaga ;-) and then hop on a cheap as cheap can be coach down to Granada for just eight euros. To do this, simply get on the number 19 bus at Malaga...

I have already written several opinions on my experiences in Spain so far, but the time has come to write about my favourite place here, Granada. For those unfamiliar with Spanish Geography, Granada is in Southern Spain, about 70 miles north-east of the Costa del Sol and very close to Spain's...

Lots of hills!

Many Brits heading for Spain go straight for the well-established tourist spots of Barcelona and further south, the resorts of the Costa Del Sol. But just an hour's drive from the popular resorts of Malaga and Torremolinos, there is a unique city which offers thousands of years of history and a...

Great value for money

Only direct flights are Ryan Air from Stanstead

Where to go on a last minute weekend trip to celebrate a special birthday in January? After a couple of hours surfing, Granda shone out like the jewell it undoubtedly is. We bought a a last minute, weekend flight and accomodation package. Flying from Sanstead at 5pm and returning three nights...

“Granada”

published 08/08/2000

Historical buildings, scenery and atmosphere

Crowds

Most visitors to Granada arrive and depart on the same day, specifically to see the Alhambra. As a consequence the convergence of coaches and tour groups causes congestion, queues, and dissatisfaction when people cannot obtain tickets. Stunning though it is, the Alhambra does lose some of its...

None!

Granada is not the usual first choice of a place to visit in Spain - but it should be! Granada is situated in Andalucia in the South of Spain, just an hour's drive from Malaga Airport and the coast. Most people will visit Granada for the Alhambra, a beautiful castle built by the Moors, situated...

Very hot in summer. Coach party heaven.

Think Southern Spain and the chances are you think of the Costa del Sol, but move an hour or so inland and you come to one of the wonders of the modern world - The Alhambra. Built by the Moors in the last Moorish stronghold before Christianity took over in Spain, this building dominates the City...

“Glorious Granada”

published 06/08/2000

The Alhambra

This isn't the place for a really cheap holiday

I visited Granada on a tour around Andalucia - it was probably my favourite bit of the tour because of the Alhambra. This is a magnificent building - the craftsmanship in the carvings and decorations is amazing. The gardens are wonderful too. There are remanants of the Moorish conquest of this...

Stunning building and setting

crowded

There is really only one reason to visit Granada and that is to visit the world famous Alhambra complex.It of course dates back to Moorish times and is probably unique in terms of the stunning architecture. But be aware that you will need a lot of imagination to rekindle the the atmosphere of...
