Hi,

After you cross the border and get into Andalusia there's a village called Bailén where you can find lots of nice oil factories. Granada has lots to see. you can find "La Alhambra" or drive up to the mountain to enjoy skiing in Sierra Nevada resort.

Hi Richard!
I am from Granada, so i can recomend u a wine-tour : señorio de nevada, its around 20 min from Granada and it just 10 €, u can google it, for more info. About Granada, city, its depend about how u wanna do, of course u cant miss the mirador de San Nicolás, the jewish quarter, albaycín, sacromonte, and enjoy a real zambra in the albaycín, but not where the tourist goes, just stroll around and enter where u think that is good, I will recoment La peña de la platería, its kind of difficult to find, but u wont regret..also, there is a spot close-by Gran via( azacayas street) called eshavira, that i strongly recomend, actually The Guardian recommend like the top spot in Granada.
Just dont hesitate and ask me whatever u want, i will be glad to answer.
Nicolas

Thank you so much for your input as it greatly enhances our search. We're trying to get a real sense of the areas we visit and most enjoy the "non-touristey" or non-touristey experiences to the extent that we can while still capturing the areas uniquiness.

Travel Tips for Granada

Albaicin

by pepples46

the Name Granada is very mysterious, 'great castle' might come as close as it gets.
a Roman Fortress once stood on Albaicin Hill. when the Moors arrived, the Town was largely inhabited by Jews and it is said, they settled in Spain even before the Romans.
Albaicin means 'quarter of falconers'
after Cordoba fell into christian hands, the Moors fled Cordoba and settle in Granada, transfering Moorish Power to Granada 1236, bringing their architects, money and skills with them, building again...the Alhambra, the moorish masterpiece of reddish stone closing the circle of moorish, christian and jewish heritage....coming from Huelva, Cordoba, Sevilla...arriving in Granada. although Cordoba is my favorite..Granada was a real highlight, absolutly fantastic feel, and driving through 'El Andaluz', the fields of Sunflowers, Olivegroves feril Landscape.
but puting the pages together for VT, reading and learning more about this heritage of human kind. Granada is a City of World Heritage....I realy enjoyed that, might not have gone into it again

Monumental Bono!

by blint

If you want to visit all the historic sites in Granada, but don't have too much money to spend, then why not get a tourist Pass for the most important Monuments and Museums in the city. For more information phone 902 100 095 or inquire at the Alhambra ticket office.

- Price: 22,50 euros (sale directly) y 24,50 euros (advance ticket sales).

Bus trips are also included in the price!

Sierra Nevada

by Sharrie

These houses were spotted somewhere near Sierra Nevada which has 14 peaks more than 3000 m (9800 ft) high. Although the Sierra is close to the Mediterranean, snow often lingers until July & then begins falling in late Autumn. I wonder why?

Fly Monarch to Granada

by amapola66

*Aug2010 - even Ryan air have stopped this route now, so it's busy old Malaga and a drive/bus now - Apparently, there are 'talks' - I will update if I hear any news*

*JULY-'08 - Sadly, this route has now ceased from the UK*
Please bring it back!

We nearly always fly Monarch if we can. You can get scheduled flights to Granada to suit your dates at an extremely reasonable price (and usually cheaper than Easy jet).

Monarch are a good airline - my favourite and you don't feel like they are 'doing you a favour' for your custom like some other low cost airlines I shall refrain from mentioning. Granada airport is still small and easy to negotiate without the crowds of Malaga.

Book early to get the best bargains, Monarch often do special sales days too, so get on their mailing list to receive advance warnings of good deals. You can get a frequent flier membership after 2 flights, which ofefrs the odd free flight and various other perks.

We used to fly from Gatwick which is a short journey by train from brighton.
