Granada holidays are the perfect meld of serene natural beauty and buzzing city life.
Encircled by mountain ranges, including the iconic Sierra Nevada, there are hundreds of exciting day trips you can take from Granada – if you can tear yourself away from the imposing cathedrals or the hundreds of tapas bars. Trips from Granada can even mean a sojourn to the Costa del Sol, so if you’re keen to get some sea and sand into your itinerary, this tour may be the one for you.
A Granada city break delivers more than serene surroundings and great food. The cultural history running through the region is unparalleled, from the white villages of the surrounding mountains to the natural and historic region of Las Alpujarras. In these mountain villages you’ll get a slice of real Andalusian life and see why people have been travelling to the regions for centuries. With a Newmarket Holidays guided tours, you can see these spots and more, including the undoubted star of the show when it comes to holidays in Granada: the Alhambra complex. Alhambra tickets are best booked in advance, and while it’s still an unbelievable experience to wander around the palace alone, a guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife Palaces will give you an even deeper appreciation of this world-famous structure.
You are sure to make time for tapas in the city of Granada.
Head to the downtown area, which is always buzzing with locals swapping stories, all while being doled out a variety of dishes to go alongside their drinks.
Alhambra beer is the most widely drunk here by far, and not just out of some sense of civic duty. The drink is crisp, refreshing, and the perfect way to top off a day of sightseeing – more importantly, though, it’s everywhere!
The Spanish Omelette, or Tortilla as it’s known locally, is a classic up and down the country, but the version from Granada is called Tortilla del Sacromonte, and is made using lamb or calf brains. Delicious, unique, and widely available: give it a try for a real taste of Granada.
