getting from malaga to granada

by rosanna.p

Hello there.
I have a simple question.
I would like to go from malaga to granada.
which is the best way?
I have seen if I go by train I have to stop in antequera at" maria zambrano station" and get the other train to granada from the "sta.ana. station"
how could i get from one train station to the other??
is there some buses?
I also have seen that actually is not so far...about 20 min. by car.

thanks a lot
best reguards

Maria Zambrano station is in Malaga, not Antequera (whose station is indeed Santa Ana). Where did you see this?

Take a bus, there´s a bus from Málaga to Granada every hour or so. The ride takes only one hour and a half. Some busses stop in Loja to leave passengers on the way to Granada. Busses are cheap, one way ticket is around 9 euros.

If you choose the train it's RENFE, you have to take the AVE – Málaga to Madrid, change trains at Antequera (roughly 25 min), there you have to take a train called ALTARIA to Granada (roughly 1h41 min).
You also have ALSA buses that run direct from Malaga to Granada and take around 1h44min.

Rosanna,

'I would like to go from malaga to granada. which is the best way?'

If 'best' is quickest, by bus with - http://www.alsa.es/portal/site/Alsa

The rest of what you say you have found out is, I am sorry to say, borderline nonsense.

Malaga city to Granada city by car is about 1 hour 30 minutes.

Best wishes.

Travel Tips for Antequera

COLEGIATA SANTA MARIA LA MAYOR

by LoriPori

The Collegiate Church of Santa Maria la Mayor - COLEGIATA SANTA MARIA LA MAYOR is a prime example of Renaissance building in Andalucia and is outstanding for the quality of its construction and its desighn. It illustrates the co-existence between late Gothic and the new style which was then beginning in Italy and dates back to the years 1514 to 1550. Stace, Hans and I marvelled at the beauty of this building, perched at the very top of a hill overlooking Antequera. It is unfortunate that we were not able to go inside as workers were doing a major renovation of the Church. One worker did let us take a peek though through the massive front door. It was completely gutted. That is something that will take a while to finish.

A City of Towers

by Geoff_Wright

Like many Spanish cities, you will be amazed by the number of churches and convents in Antequera. Unfortunately most of these buildings are now hemmed in by modern buildings, making their viewing rather difficult, and photos of them almost impossible! Here is a selection of some of the nicest ones. Many are still undergoing restoration.

Information for tourists

by Beach_dog

Almost every town or city you visit in Andalusia will have a streetmap to guide you, normally located near the central square or plaza, but for a good map with all the points of interest visit the tourist office. They are issued freely and are normally in many languages.
Tourist offices are located usually near the town centers and they also give good advice on what to visit.

Old and the New

by Geoff_Wright

As I said, it's very difficult to photograph a complete building here. I'm not sure of the name, but this church, or perhaps old convent, will soon be lost to view by yet another development ( in the foreground out of sight).

LOS DOLMENES DE ANTEQUERA

by LoriPori

The Dolmens in Antequera LOS DOLMENES DE ANTEQUERA are considered to be the finest example of this type of megalithic construction in Europe. They date back to the Copper Age and prove the existence of civilization in the area 4500 years ago. These burial grounds are noteworthy for their size, with stone slabs weighing up to 180 tons. The Menga Dolmen is thought to date back to the early stage of the Copper Age, around 2500 B.C.; the Viera Dolmen to approximately 2000 B.C. and the Romeral Dolmen to 1800 B.C. Located just before you enter the town of Antequera, the Dolmens appear to be huge mounds of earth and you wouldn't even know there was anything there. Only because Stace knew it was there that we knew about it. But unfortunately, most of the grounds were closed as they were working on one of the Dolmens. A man working there explained that they had found a new vein in the tunnels, which was very exciting, but for now closed to the public.
