The ancient historical city of Granada has long been a firm favourite of visitors to Spain. The breath-taking Alhambra Palace, sheltered by imposing Sierra Nevada Mountains is, for many people, an iconic image of Spain.
Granada Fredrico Garcia Airport is approximately 30 mins drive away from the city centre, and the roads in the Granada region are flanked by some of the most picturesque scenery in the country, taking you from the sweltering heat of the city, to the snow-capped mountains, and right down to the sun-kissed beaches of the Costa Tropical.
Granada is a city of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, making it a vibrant and fascinating place to visit. Though you can drive up the famous Alhambra palace itself, the old quarters of the city are best explored on foot. Wander through the winding streets of the Alcaiceria, or head up to the Sacramonte to catch a traditional Flamenco display and you’re bound to come across something magical and unexpected in this lively city.
The Granada region as a whole boats that you can ‘ski in the morning, sunbathe in the afternoon’ as the high mountains roll down to the coast. Driving down the fantastic new roads, you can turn off and take in the pleasant Lecrin Valley, with its rich agricultural heritage, or move east to explore the lower mountain region of the Alpujarras, a mountain region where a modern ‘art community’ live alongside traditional farmers and producers.
Once you’re on the coast roads, you find yourself on the Costa Tropical. Thanks to its subtropical microclimate, the Costa Tropical boasts some of the best weather in the country, and is where many Spanish nationals go for their annual holidays. The large resort of Almunecar is certainly well developed, while Salobrena, with its smaller Arab castle perched above the town, is still largely un-commercialised.
The Granada region has so many attractions for all kinds of visitors, and hiring a car ensures you can discover the fabulous sights and sounds of the region at your own pace.
