Activities in Granada
GranadaAlready the name Granada sounds like music in the ears. In the mind's eye, it awakens the magic of Moorish palace gardens, the driving rhythms of hot flamenco shows, great cultures and last but not least, the irresistible scent of fresh citrus fruits in the bustling markets. And what do we say? Your inner eye does not deceive you. In the shadow of the world-famous "red fortress" of Alhambra, the city embodies the richness of the Moorish-Andalusian heritage like no other place in Andalusia. It is no wonder that many holidaymakers fall in love with Granada with its mixture of cosmopolitan modernity, living history on the old silk market and a little hippie flair in the university district. If monumental cathedrals and worthwhile exhibitions such as the Sacromonte Cave Museum are not enough, you can leave Granada for the snow-capped summits of the Sierra Nevada, which are often covered in snow even in the summer. Alternatively, enjoy the Andalusian ‘gitano’ music and a freshly brewed mocha in the Plaza de San Nicolas.
