What can I see?

Granada is a city with infinite possibilities, and something to suit all tastes.

The Alhambra and the Generalife, one of the most frequently visited monuments in the world, presents itself as one of the first options. The privileged location of the hotel will make your visit more pleasant and special, as you’ll be able to enjoy it once everyone else has left. The blend of colours, smells, decorativedetails, … The sound of water in every corner will intoxicate all your senses.

The Albaicín, an ancient district of the city constructed on the hill just opposite the Alhambra. It invites you to wander its classic white streets where you will encounter the original Granada house, a legacy of the Arabs: the ” Carmen”. Take pleasure in enjoying the views from each corner and the architectural richness of these Carmen houses. The Sacromonte has become an unmissable stop on any walking tour of Albaicín. Don’t forget to enjoy an evening of ” Zambra gitana” in one of the grottoes of the Sacromonte. Staying in this area for the moment, we also invite you to visit the “Abadía del Sacromonte“. The history of this monument, and its lead books, are a key part of life in the city.

The la Cartuja Monastery, the Arab baths, the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel with the last one being where the Catholic Kings are buried. Together they form an unmissable selection of landmarks to visit. They are just a part of the infinite treasures that the city offers, and yet another sample of the great mixture of civilisations that Granada has experienced.

Sierra Nevada and the Alpujarras. The city also offers attractive options for lovers of mountaineering. For those who enjoy skiing, Sierra Nevada is one of the most iconic resorts. The Mulhacén, the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula, makes the Sierra Nevada landscape quite unique. The “Alpujarras”, small Arabic villages hidden on the southern slope of Sierra Nevada, in Barranco de Poqueira, are a beautiful destination for excursions.

Tropical Coastline. Slightly less than an hour away from these mountains, you can enjoy the Granada beach. The climate is pleasant all year round, with tropical vegetation and beautiful countryside. And how could you pass up the sea...
