Strongest Points

1. Cultural heritage.

Granda is a huge historical monument itself. The famous La Alhambra is a UNESCO Worlds Heritage Site. Whole areas of the city are admitted as a cultural property by UNESCO. Among the most visited monuments of Granada you’ll find The Cathedral of Granada, The Royal Chapel, The Charterhouse, The Monastery San Jeronimo.

2. Granada’s history importance

Granada has played an important role in the history of Spain. One of the most impressive monuments La Alhambra was constructed during the centuries of the arab dominance. Romans and  arabs left their marks on the architecture and culture. Later Granada was conquered by The Catholic Monarchs and the new chapter in Granada’s history began.

3. Activities and walking tours

Granada has lots to offer: various barrios with their history and unique atmosphere. Apart from that, Granada has an ideal geographical location. You can enjoy hiking or even skiing in the mountains or you can go to the Costa Tropical and spend your day on the beach.

4. Great variety of activities

All-year-round there are fiestas and cultural activities as well as music and dance concerts. Everyone will find something interesting here! One of the most famous festivals is Semana Santa which is celebrated non-stop for one week.  

Study Spanish in Granada

Granada is an incredibly beautiful town in the heart of Andalucía. It is situated about 45min to the north from lovely beaches of the "Costa Tropical". Right at the base of Sierra Nevada, Granada is definitely one of the most beautiful cities Spain has to offer. 
La Alhambra is without a doubt what people associate with Granada, but the city has way more to offer. One of its most distinct features is the Albaycin, the old arab part of town, with its cobbled and narrow streets with the typical labyrinthic arabic structure and white-chalked houses. Walk up the streets of the Albaycin until you get to the popular square of San Juan de los Reyes where you can gaze at La Alhambra with the snow-clad mountains of Sierra Nevada behind it. There are lots of viewpoints in Albaicín with a breathtaking view of La Alhambra. You’ll also find small squares with fountains and hidden gardens. Or you might prefer to visit Sacromonte where the gypsies live, the heart of Flamenco, with its caves and unique atmosphere. You’ll also enjoy to stay down at the foot of the hills, go out and buy a cerveza in any tapas bar around Plaza Nueva and be pleasently surprised by the great (free!) tapas that accompany your beverage.

Granada apparently has the largest amount of bars per inhabitant in Spain (which means there must be a lot, as the Spanish usually spend more time in the local bar than at home!), and most of them are usually full of chattering and friendly Spaniards, who will be happy to talk to you for hours if you wish to do so. The local fiestas are as frequent as they are fun, there is always at least one "barrio-fiesta" (street party in a close-by neighbourhood) going on, with concerts, fun fairs and more opportunities to try all that great Spanish food and to practice Spanish.

How to get there

Flying to Granada Airport

British Airways operates direct flights from London City Airport (UK) to Granada several times a week. The flights are fairly reasonably priced. 

Granada airport is 12km from the city centre. On arrival it is best to get a taxi from the airport so that you can get to your accommodation without walking through the streets with your luggage. The taxi costs about 28 euros. 

There is also a bus which takes you to the centre of Granada. The bus times tie in with all the flights.

 

Getting to Granada by Train

The train station is fairly central and is in Avenida de Andaluces off Avenida de la constitución. The phone number is  958 271 272. Granada is not on a high speed line. 

The Talgo takes about 5 and a half hours from Madrid. Seville is 4 hours by train. Most people choose the bus rather than the train when coming from Malaga or Almeria.

RENFE have a good website giving full  information about trains in Spain, English, French, etc. 

 

 

Getting to Granada by Bus

There are many buses each day to and from other large Spanish cities. To buy tickets online, visit ALSA. You can check times and prices and even choose your seats. The bus station is slightly out of town and you will need to get a taxi or a bus to get to the centre

From Madrid
If you are coming from Madrid or Malaga you will need to go to "Estación del Sur".

The nearest tube station to "Estación del Sur" in Madrid is Méndez Álvaro. The buses leave every hour and if there is a busy day, for example before or after a fiesta they put on more buses according to demand. The usual thing (if you haven't bought tickets in advance) is just to go to the bus station and get on the next available bus. You would be unlucky if you have to wait longer than 2 hours for a bus. Buy your tickets from the ALSA window or machine. There are various services between Madrid and Granada:
♦ normal (5 hours - 17.53€): 1:30, 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 10:30, 11:30, 14:00, 15:00, 16:30, 17:30, 18:30, 20:30
♦ supra economy (4 horas 30 minutes - 26.81€): 1:00, 7:00
♦ supra + (4 hours 30 minutes - 35.87€): 13:30, 19:30

The bus company owns a cafe half way between Madrid and Granada where they sell overpriced dried up sandwiches and lukewarm coffee. If this is your first time in Spain don't get depressed, Spanish catering is not normally that bad.

From Málaga
Internet booking systems now function well so it is better to book seat online on ALSA, otherwise the normal procedure for getting a bus is to go to the station and get on the next available bus.

Getting taxis within Granada
It seems that it is not possible to book taxis in advance. However, if you phone for a taxi in Granada it rarely takes longer than 10 minutes for them to arrive. To get a taxi in Granada, just go to a taxi rank or phone 958 280 654. There are lots of taxi ranks in Granada: in front of the bus station, in front of the train station, in front of the plaza de Triunfo, in Plaza Nueva, in Fuente de las Batallas, and in front of the Corte Inglés, etc.
