Granada Information

The province of Granada is home to the highest mountains of the peninsula which are covered with snow almost all year. This great picture is the backdrop of the National Park Sierra Nevada where you can enjoy skiing from November to May, and the ancient Arab city Granada with its famous Alhambra.

This province holds a great variety in landscapes, as only about 70 km from the highest peaks is situated the Topical coast of Granada where are grown tropical fruit. The coastline of Granada is steep, with little coves and far less known than its famous neighbor Malaga. Coastal towns are Almuñecar, la Herradura or Salobreña and Motril; in Marina del Este is situated a Yacht harbor. Water sports and scuba diving are popular here, thanks to the variety of sea life and clarity of the water.

In the south of the province between mountains and Mediterranean Sea we find the Alpujarras with sheltered fertile valleys with orange and lemon trees and charming Moorish villages. In the north we find high mountain ranges, pine tree forests, gorges and stunning desert landscapes in Guadix with many manmade caves which are currently inhabited.

But most outstanding is the Moorish city of Granada, with the Alhambra as declared world heritage monument by UNESCO, along with the winding and labyrinthine streets and whitewashed houses of the Albaycín.
