Granada - Spain

Widely known for Flamenco music, dance, bull-fights, fantastic beaches and lots of sunshine, Spain has to offer much more than that. It is - and has been for thousands of years - one of the cultural centres of Europe. It has beautiful cities and towns, offering really old monuments as well as futuristic architecture. Its various regions are all different one to each other, geographically, climatically and even in personality.

Granada is the capital of the province with the same name, situated in the eastern part of the region of Andalusia. The city is located at the foot of the "Sierre Nevada", Spain's highest mountain Ideal for wintersports. On the other hand it is not far from the Mediterranean sea. With sandy beaches you can go to Granada any time of the year.

The foremost reason to go to Granada is to visit the magnificent Alhambra, one of the great sights of Europe, built by the Moors in the 13th century. The complex of palaces, fortress and gardens is simply not to be missed. During warmer months, the palaces are open at night.

Granada doesn't have an international airport but you can fly in from Madrid, which is 45 minutes away or Barcelona one hour away.
