A corner of Spain called GranadaGranada is the southern Spanish city, home to UNESCO World Heritage treasures such as the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens, reminders of the ancient splendors of Al-Andalus, and the extended period of Muslim rule of the Iberian Peninsula. In Granada, historic districts await you; like Albaicín, with its winding medieval backstreets that resemble a North African bazaar, and Sacromonte, with its inhabited caves. For centuries, under both Muslim and Christian rule, Granada was renowned as a cultural beacon, the source of inspiration for illustrious Spanish poets and composers such as García Lorca, Juan Ramón Jiménez and Manuel de Falla. Today, Granada is a forward-looking city and continues to attract deserved attention, thanks to its reputation as a friendly, welcoming place, full of life, with a wealth of treasures waiting to be discovered.
What else is there in Granada?Granada offers a wide range of contrasts, making it unique:
Snow and beach in one day
Yes indeed, the beautiful Mediterranean beaches of the Costa Tropical are less than an hour by car from Granada, and after a dip in the sea, you’re not far from the Sierra Nevada, Europe’s most southerly ski resort, just 20 km from the city centre, and venue of the 1995 World Alpine Ski Championships. The resort is also renowned for the Sierra Nevada National Park, offering one of the most varied natural habitats in this part of the Iberian Peninsula.
Authentic Tapas…Even the famous tapas are different in Granada. The custom is to serve them free with a drink in many of the city centre bars. No gimmicks, no catch: bars competing to serve the best free tapas in a city with a non-stop night time energy. As well as outstanding tapas, Granada’s bar scene is one of the most intense and diverse in Spain. Well worth looking out for are the bars with live music performances almost daily.

Granada is a pleasant, medium-sized city; the city itself totals 250,000 inhabitants, with a population of 500,000 in the metropolitan area. One particularly important part of the population are students from the University of Granada, one of Spain’s most prestigious seats of learning, the fourth largest in terms of the number of students enrolled, and one of the most popular options for Erasmus students from all over Europe.
