Tourist guide to visit Granada

Visit Granada: A visit that you can not miss and a perfect complement to your experience in El Guerra

Visit Granada, an experience you can not miss

We are in a city with centuries of history and a mixture of cultures that is evident in every corner. < strong> We have one of the most impressive monuments in the world and the most visited in Spain, La Alhambra, who was nominated among the finalists of the 7 Wonders of the world.

But Granada is not only The Alhambra. Its historic center, its cathedral or the Barrios del Albaicín and Sacromonte, considered World Heritage by UNESCO among other attractions, will make you unable to resist the charm of Granada.

We are only 15 kilometers from Granada, one of the most charming cities in Spain. Enjoy its monuments, its streets, its viewpoints and, of course, its tapas.

The five “stops” that you can not miss when visiting Granada

The Alhambra

The emblem of the city. You can visit the Nasrid Palaces with its spectacular Patio de los Leones, go through the gardens until you reach the Generalife or climb its towers from where you can see a panoramic view of the city of Granada.

Important tip: If you want to visit the Alhambra, it is best to take the tickets in advance through the Internet, because it is very common to finish well in advance. 

Históric center of the city

This part includes the Cathedral and the main squares, Plaza Bib-Rambla. Plaza de Isabel La Católica, Plaza del Ayuntamiento and Plaza Nueva. It is an ideal area to enjoy the multitude of bars, restaurants and shops. Do not miss the souk and the Calle de las Teterías.

Important tip: All the places mentioned will impress you but we recommend a stop in the center of the city to taste the typical Granada tapas in one of the most famous bars of the city.

Paseo de los tristes

A stone walk that you can not miss when visiting Granada. It is a lovely walk along the river, passing by small bridges and ending in a “Plaza Nueva” from where you can see the Alhambra and climb the Sacromonte and Albaicín.

Important tip: We recommend a night walk to see the environment and the Alhambra illuminated.


It is the Arab quarter of the city. Be surprised by its narrow streets and especially by El Mirador de San Nicolás, from where you will see Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada in the background.

Important tip: Get lost in its narrow streets and soak up the atmosphere and the Arab culture.


Close to the Albaicín, it is the gypsy neighborhood of the city. With beautiful views of the Alhambra and a large number of caves to see the authentic flamenco, combines history with art and traditions in a masterly way.

Important tip: We recommend a visit to the typical caves where you can enjoy an authentic flamenco show
