Travel with bus from Madrid to Granada

by Iveria

Hello all,

I'm arriving at Madrid at about 11 PM or so, and I'll go to Granada afterwards, with bus.

My question is, is it necessary to book a bus ticket in advance or will I easily be able to find bus tickets at that time?

Cheers!

you can just buy the tickets at the station. you may have to wait about an hour before departure.

If you are taking the bus on a national holiday it might be a problem.

Did you check the www.alsa.es site already for times ? I guess that you want to go for the bus leaving at 01.00 or at 01.30 as these may be the last ones until following morning. If you plan to travel on a day that is not a 'busy' day like eve of National Holiday or say a Friday night then you should have luck. Of course you can always book a seat using ALSA if worried and hope the plane is on time and you can reach Estacion de Sur on time. The 01.30 bus from SUR bus station starts at MADRID (INTERCAM AV.AMERICA)at 01.00.

Hi

Madrid to Granada by Bus

There are regular buses throughout the day between Madrid and Granada. The journey takes five hours and costs about 20 euros.
Buses from Madrid to Granada depart from Mendez Alvaro. You can book most bus tickets in Spain online at no extra charge. Just pay with a credit card and print out the e-ticket but it is not a must. you can also by it at the bus station.
Try to use the gospain.com for more info

I don't think you will find many buses running that late at night. You should plan on staying at one of the many inexpensive hotels/hostels near the bus station. Are you flying into Barajas airport? If it is not too late you should be able to take the metro in to central Madrid and still have time to take the metro to the area by the bus station. As to your specific question, I just showed up and missed one bus by about 10 minutes, the next was in about two hours. You don't have to wait in the bus station. There is an Il Cortes Englis department store about a 10 minute walk away (they usually have a good snack/lunch bar). Also nice places to grab a snack around. Karl

I would agree to taking the night bus should the situation allows

@ advanced booking: no need if you are flexible a bit and there is no National Holiday, otherwise booking one in advance would be wise, imo

Fall time fiestas

by Danalia

For me, the best time to visit Madrid is during September and October . It's not hot anymore as it used to be a month or tow ago. Weather inspire you to travel around and do more things, including take a part at the local fest at the end of the summer.
during this time the Fiesta de Otonio presents music and theatre performs that can last untill x-mass.

Caixa Forum

by Urzu

Caixa Forum is the newest cultural center in Madrid, it's located in the Paseo de Recoletos, only a few meters away from the Prado Museum (but on the other side of the street). This cultural center hosts many different art exhibitions, as well as many activities, such as conferences or things that children can do to have fun & learn at the same time. The good thing about this center is that most things are for free or for a very small amount of money, so it's definitely worth checking out! Even if you don't have the time to go in, check out the vertical garden and the sculptures by the entrance, you won't regret it!
I'm ading the link to the website, but sorry, it's only in Spanish or Catalan.

Eye candy

by agarcia about Caramelos Paco

During more than forty years, my grandparents lived in a little street adjacent to El Rastro flea market, and we used to visit them every Saturday evening (no exceptions allowed). The bus that took us from our home to theirs stopped right there, in from of Caramelos Paco's shop window. So during years, every Saturday evening (no exception allowed) I found myself facing that delicious and colorful exposition of candies... the kind of vision that could bring light into a pair of 8-year-old eyes. I certainly cannot contain a smile whenever I pass in front of this shop, something that I've noticed as well in many other adults of the neighborhood. I reckon Caramelos Paco is also among their sweetest memories from their childhood. :-) Candies, what else?? :-p
