Granada is a Spanish province situated between the Mediterranean Sea, Almeria, Murcia, Albacete, Jaen, Cordoba and Malaga. With regard to natural beauty, Granada overshadows all the provinces of Spain. Here you will find the highest point of the Pyrenean Peninsula - the Sierra Nevada with it’s snow-covered peak. Almost the entire „Snowy Mountain” is a protected area. The landscape is beautiful and perfect for leisure activities such as hiking, excursions or, in winter, skiing. The capital of the province is Granada.
The Spanish have a saying: „Those who haven't seen Granada, haven't seen anything”. In Granada you can visit famous landmarks such as the Alhambra, the Cathedral and the Generalife. The Generalife was the summer residence of the sultans of Nasrid. The Alhambra, Generalife and Albicín together form one of the 38 World Heritage sites of Spain.
Granada is the mother country of the ’flamenco’ so it would be a vice to miss out on a flamenco evening in the Sacramonte Cave.
Most tourists visit the 12,500km² province because of the Alhambra (one of the most frequented tourist sites in the world) and Moorish castle-town. The Alhambra is the holy place of the ancient Moorish monarchy as well as being a fortress complex. But the province offers a lot of other sights as well. The thermal baths and health resorts in the mountains are for visitors who would like to preserve or recover their health. Guests who would like to enjoy the Spanish cuisine won’t be disappointed either. For sun lovers a visit to the Costa Tropical, which is the easternmost part of the Costa del Sol, is certainly worthwhile. All of the ingredients are here for an undisturbed holiday.
From the Albaicin’s belvedere you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city, the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada. It’s worth watching the sunset as the sun disappears behind the Alhambra and then enjoy the evening lights of Granada.
