Guide of Granada


Even though Granada is situated at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains and overlooks the plains, it is just 70 kilometres from the seashore in the southern region of Spain. In addition to being located at the junction of three rivers, the Genil and Darro, it is also situated at an altitude of about 730 metres above sea level.

Climate in Granada

Granada has a Mediterranean climate with short, hot, dry summers with mainly clear skies, and lengthy, cold winters with few clouds. The average annual temperature ranges from 0°C to 33°C, with lows of -4°C and highs of 37°C. The best time to visit Granada for hot-weather activities is between late June and late August.


From the 13th through the 15th century, this enigmatic metropolis served as the capital of a Moorish state. Granada was like a paradise to the Moors, who came from North Africa. The magnificence of the Nasrid Dynasty was unparalleled in the mediaeval world. For instance, in the Alhambra Palace's high castle, a paradise of rose gardens and fountains flowed eternally. Granada was the final stronghold of the Moors in Spain when it was seized by the Catholic Monarchs in 1491 after centuries of prosperity. Granada's rich Islamic, Jewish, and Gypsy heritage still permeates the city, despite the fact that it is now mostly Christian.

Things To Do in Granada

Marvel at the Alhambra

The Alhambra of Granada is one of Spain's most popular tourist sites, attracting over 2 million tourists each year. This spectacular Moorish castle-fortress stands high above a hill in the city centre and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It comprises the Nasrid Palaces (Europe's most gorgeous Islamic edifice), the Generalife (the Sultan's summer house), and the Alcazaba (an 11th-century military bastion that is the oldest portion of the Alhambra). Aside from the aesthetics, to really enjoy Alhambra, you need to understand more about its intriguing history as you ascend the hill from Plaza Neuva and take a tour through the labyrinth of royal rooms, courtyards, gardens, towers, and turrets. Following the Spanish invasion of Granada, the authorities renovated most of the interiors, replacing the on-site mosque with a chapel and adding other Renaissance-style constructions. Today, you can witness the results of centuries of repair and reconstruction.

Visit the Albaicin neighbourhood

The Albaicin neighbourhood, located on the northern slope of the Alhambra, paints one of the most realistic views of Granada with its small cobblestone lanes, beautiful traditional buildings, attractive plazas, and various ancient attractions. Strolling about here, you'll get a sense of Granada's historic Muslim districts, complete with various stores and a souk-style market where you can bargain for spices or dried fruits. The whole Albaicin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the San Salvador Church, which was previously a mosque and still has Arab inscriptions, will astound you. Stop by the Corral del Carbon and its handcraft stores for some keepsakes. Tapas may be found on Calle Elvira and Calle Caldereria Nueva.

Watch a Flamenco Show

Flamenco is said to have originated in Granada, and seeing a live performance of this quintessentially Spanish dance performance is a fun thing to do while in the city. The Zambra, in its most traditional form, takes place in the area of Sacromonte, where the dazzling manoeuvres of the dancers, along with the thunderous guitars and vocals, will guarantee that you have a great evening in the city.
