Gorgeous Granada holidays 2020

Set in the historic Andalucia region, with the impressive Sierra Nevada as a backdrop, Granada is a city with lots of character. Located in southern Spain and surrounded by beautiful countryside, the sun is always shining on this historic city, so you have the time to wander around and discover the sights on your Granada holiday in 2020. Book a great deal and you'll find that a holiday to Granada can definitely be a cheap holiday.

With a melting pot of cultures and rich history that’s reflected in its Moorish architecture, holidays in Granada will open a window into the past. From the Moors to the Jews and Christians, this small city is extremely cosmopolitan. Starting with the unmissable Alhambra Palace, whilst taking in the city’s ornate gardens, you’ll be charmed by its individuality.

The coast is only an hour away and the neighbouring cities of Malaga, Córdoba and Seville are on your doorstep. Up in the mountains above Granada are Los Pueblos Blancos, the white towns of Andalusia. The quaint white houses with flat roofs are authentically Spanish, and are a great starting point for hikes between the villages of Pampaneira and Bubion.

Things to do in Granada

Time to explore
Top attractions

Top attractions

Granada is best explored on foot. Down the cobbled streets and through the tranquil plazas you will find an abundance of must-see sights.

The most iconic building in Granada is the 1,000-year-old Alhambra Palace. As one of the best examples of Islamic architecture in Europe, the UNESCO-awarded Alhambra is a splendid palace that sits high above the city. As the legacy of Muslim rulers, the palace is the most popular attraction in Granada and consists of two other palaces, Generalife and Albayzín that have spectacular courtyards and gardens.

Bath houses were central to life in Granada and some of their remains are still evident in the city. El Bañuelo has been designated a National Monument and stands gracefully with its smooth stone archways, charming tiles and elegantly carved sky-lights. The ancient Arabic bath complex, which dates back to the 11th century, can be found in the Carrera del Darro but sadly you can’t bathe there these days.

Beaches

Beaches

Although you won’t be right next to a beach on your Granada holiday, the nearest beaches are only an hour south of the city. Known as the Costa Tropical, the coast of Granada features pebbled or white sand with calm crystal-clear waters that stretch out to the Alboran Sea.

Popular with holidaymakers, Peñón de Salobreña has a long, coarse-sanded shore with stunning blue waters that touch a small island off the beach. Perfect for swimming, this beach has a good range of facilities so you and the family can relax and have all-day fun in the sun.

The cove of La Rijana beach in Castell de Ferro is a great base to discover some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving spots due to the crystal-clear waters. The untouched pebble beach is very peaceful and protected by rocks, and also loved by the locals.

Award-winning La Herradura beach in Almuñecar offers astonishing views of the Sierra de la Almijara. The beach has dark sand and is the ideal spot to spend your holidays in Granada.
