Top things to do in Granada, Spain. Free Granada city guide

10 Things To Do

Granada is amazing! A city full of vibrant student life and a rich history, Granada is the soul of Southern Spain. With this list of must-see sights, you’re sure to see Granada the way it’s meant to be seen and experience all the best parts of this Andalucian gem - like tasty free tapas, distinct culture, amazing arcitecture, vibrant flamanco, and bustling night life.


The Alhambra

The beauty of the Alhambra is world renowned. Strategically situated on top of a hill overlooking the city of Granada, the design’s functional purpose as the last Moorish stronghold in Spain is overshadowed by its incredible splendour and its intermingled fountains, gardens, and ornate stone work.

Walk the Albaizín

The Albaizín is the old Arabic quarter located on the hill opposite the Alhambra. It is characterized by cobble stoned streets with white washed houses. There are many squares with terraces and places to laze about or grab a bite to eat. Get lost in its small, windy streets and get an idea of how life was in the past centuries.

 

See a Flameco Show

Granada, or better said, the caves of the Sacromonte, are one of the cradles of flamenco. Try Venta a El Gallo or La Chien Andalou for some true flamenco. The flamenco dance will be performed by artists who are direct descendants of many famous names in the flamenco world. A number of clubs in the city also have flamenco shows throughout the week.

Eat Tapas

Surely you don’t need to be told to eat tapas. They’re free after all. At any tapas bar, all you need to order is a drink – be it beer, sangria, cola, or whatever – after a few sips, you will be surprised by generous servings of tapas. The most classic tapas are generally located around Pedro Antonio and the touristy Plaza Nueva. It’s unclear how they can afford to give away so much food, but who cares? Enjoy!

 

The Caves of Sacromonte

Walk to the Caves on Sacromonte from San Miguel Alto and enjoy one of the most beautiful and impressive views of Granada. More than 1,000 people live in caves in Granada. The gypsies arrived about 600 years ago and many of them congregated in these caves of the Sacromonte. The mixture of Arabic influence combined with the particular lifestyle and temperament of the gypsies created flamenco.

Cathedral of Granada

One of the most beautiful buildings in Granada. As is the case of most Christian buildings in Granada, the Cathedral was built on the site of a former Mosque. Work on the Cathedral began on the 15th of March, 1523, and it was not completed until 1704, as construction came to a halt during the Plague.

 

Hammam Arabic Baths

You will find baths with different temperatures, like in the Al-Andalus times, hopping from one pool to another. Massages are optional and a great way to take a break from stressful travelling.

Monachil

Go to Monachil via the Los Cahoros Mountain Route to see the beautiful nature of Andalucia. You can enjoy beautiful views, waterfalls, and a babbling mountain river there.

 

Calle de las Teterías

Along Calderia Vieja and Calderia Nueva, twisting antique lanes climb the hill into the heart of the old Muslim district of the Albaizín, where Arab shops offer handmade crafts from Morocco, sweets from Jerusalem, and pungent Arabian spices. Softly lit tea houses promise mint tea and water pipes, evoking the hospitality of ancient Persia.
