live music, concerts, theatre, cinema in Granada week 3-9 June
Anyone know of any concerts or theatre in Granada for the first weeks of June? Or at least a website where I could find out "what's on"?
Thanks in advance!
Re: live music, concerts, theatre, cinema in Granada week 3-9 June
Hi, When I was in Granada I picked up some 'what's on' guides from the tourist info office and at the airport. If You want to plan before You arrive, the tourist office might be able to send You 'Where 2' 'Granada X-press' and 'Pocketguia'
The tourist office is - Officina de Turismo, C/Santa Ana, 2 18009
Telephone 958 225990
fax 958 223927
www.granadaxpress.com -I tried this address but I couldn't get any info
www.pocketguia.es -the website is in Spanish,(there are plenty of events listed) but the paper guide is in spanish and english
www.where2.es - in english, but I couldn't find any events listed on the webpage - the booklet has a list of events for the month ahead.
I hope this is helpful.
Have A Great time in Granada!
Travel Tips for Granada
Granada's location along our route
This terrain map gives an overview of our driving route in southern Spain. After flying in from Madrid, we spent two nights in Alicante in the upper right corner before making the long drive along the coast to Torremolinos. After picking up Sue's sister at the airport, the next morning we headed straight north into the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges before veering off to the right (east) for our two nights in Granada (near the centre of the map).
From there we headed west to Seville, Cadiz and then back down to the coast for a few days before Sue's sister flew home again. After a few more days on our own, Sue and I made it back to the very outskirts of Granada on New Year's Day when we made a day-trip drive along the coast a short distance (from Torremolinos again) before taking the other 'orange' diagonal route through the mountains before returning straight south to the coast (as described in my 'Torremolinos' page).
Being Granada a city of Moorish origin, the tradition of Arab baths is still well alive. There are two places I checked out, and was very happy with both. You can also have a 15 minutes aromaterapy massage, which in both places was not very good - it was cheap, though. The prices in both establishments are similar and you need to make reservations in advance, at least theorethically. When you phone and try to reserve a 4pm or 6pm session, they will likely tell you that it's full and that wou can go there at 8 pm. However if you simply turn up, there are chances that you will be admitted. Here are the two addresses:
Hammam Arabic Baths
Calle Santa Ana, 16
Tel: 958 22 99 78
Aljibe de San Miguel Arab Baths
next to Obispo Hurtado Street
958 522 867.
The Hammam Arabic Baths are smaller and more intimate, but there are only two pools, one with hote water and one with cold water. The Aljibe de San Miguel Arab Baths are larger and more crowded, but they also have more hot water pools at different temperatures. A swimsuit must be worn, but you can buy one at the baths, if necessary
Oh say can you see?
Traveling to foreign countries requires a bit of a look at how the locals live. We hiked up some interesting streets, something that I am not so inclined to do by mysekf but traveling with a well seasoned traveller allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and see some areas of Granada I never would have considered going to. It really allowed us to see the local architecture as well as some of the "anti Americano" graffitti. It gives one cause for pause. Moreover it also provides some spectacular views of the city and gives us insight to how many people live their lives. I would not like to try and get a refrigerator up through those narrow streets, that is for sure!
Electronic goods aren't that cheap here. They are roughly the same price as Canada and Britain which makes them more expensive for the Spanish who earn less! Therefore make sure you come equipped.
A roll of film will cost you around five euros depending where you get it from. In more touristy areas you can pay up to 7 euros whilst in untouristy places you can play as little as 4 euros.
You can get a big bottle of water for 23 cents in the supermarkets, so bare this in mind when people try and charge you 1.50 for one in places like the Albaicin.
A coffee will cost you around 80 cents to a euro unless you are in a touristy upper market place.
A dinner in a restaurant will probably cost around 20 euros per person (including drink).
Clothes can vary. There are a lot of brand name shops here that cost rediculous prices. Check out the second hand shops by Plaza de Universidad and Plaza de los Lobos for some bargains. Including jeans at around 9 euros and other tops and trousers for as little as 3 euros. You can get leather jackets there for around 45-60 euros too.
A flat will cost you around 400 euros per month if you are looking for a decent place. Though you can get student holes for as little as 225 euros a month.
The cheapest shoes you can find are 10 euros in the Arabic shop though for good walking shoes it will cost you between 30-50 euros.
A hotel room can cost you around 25 to 100 euros depending on the stars and where it is.
Around Granada. Bus
The best way to move to other places in Andalucia is the bus. Most of the cities and villages are linked by this transport. The Bus Station is a bit away from the city. Go by taxi or I think there are also buses thats take you there. It's cheap to travel by bus. Alsina Graells is the most important company there. The telephone (to consult timetables, prizes and other things: 958.151.020
