Driving from Barcelona to Granada

by MaheshSamtani

Driving from Barcelona to Granada is quite a distance. Aprox. 3.5 hours to Valencia and aprox. 5 hours from there ( if you had to do it without stopping ) . I suggest you break your trip, spend a day in Valencia, where there is a lot to see and then continue towards Granada.
From Barcelona till Valencia you will have to pay a toll of aprox. 40 Euros per vehicle and Valencia onwards is toll free if you take the correct road. The roads are pretty good. Regarding the time, if it is only 6 to 7 days, just go around Granada -Sevilla and Cordoba. Andalucia is a huge area with 8 different provinces so better select a certain area for this period of time instead of just going around without getting the proper taste of nothing.
Cheers

No, 6-7 days is not enough time. Depends what you like, cities or countryside, or coast. Pick what you think will appeal to you and go for that, as said above.

Travel Tips for Granada

Gypsy Dancing in Caves

by johnnyo

You have to go to one of the gypsy dancing in cave things. They say it's all inclusive drinks, but that's a load of BS - it's two free rounds before and at intermission of the show. You can't order a double. And sometimes they don't have enought time to serve everyone, because they pack you in like sardines. BYOB to make it really fun. And be sure to dance with them when they offer, it's a blast!

Semana Santa

by TempNomad

If you are lucky enough to be in Spain during Semana Santa, try to get to one of the cities that really celebrates it in style. I was in Granada and it totally blew me away. The amount of struggle and pain the people go through while carrying these effigies is staggering. Some people do it out of devotion, some have promised to do it if they're prayers were answered, some are doing it out of penance. There are many many people watching the procession, but since they go on for ten to twenty hours at times, you can find a place to watch without too many people. Early morning hours are usually best!

I chose this photo because you can see all the feet at the bottom. The side-to-side movement is spooky. The clothing on the effigy moves in a lifelike way. Try to catch a time when the participants have to hoist the platform onto their backs...they synchronize it perfectly.

Wow that view!

by janeliv

Tracks wind up the hillside behind the town and into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The atmosphere gradually changes from mediterranean to mountain, as you walk or drive through olive groves, orchards and forest. The view, on a clear day as far as Africa are stunning, and never fail to please. There are even conveniently placed drinking water springs where a thirst can be slaked, or a rest taken.

Girls be careful!

by profuselycool about GRANADA 10

Granada 10 is one of the most well-known clubs in Granada. However, its location in the albaicin, a somewhat seedy (though very fun) neighborhood presents problems. A very unfortunate incident happened to one of the girls on my trip, I don't want to get into details, but you can probably figure it out on your own. All I'll say is that people aren't exaggerating when they say Spanish guys can be aggressive and "hands-on," so girls, take a guy like me (6'3, 190 haha) or several other friends with you unless you're looking for a rendezvous with some Spaniard. smart casual, it's a bit more upscale than some of the other discos but nothing too formal.

by Kay_C

We had rented a car which is a great way to see the countryside, however, driving in the city centre is rather confusing due to the complexity of the streets. Make sure to have a good map and study it before or else just 'wing it' and hope you end up at your destination!
