10 Best To-Do in Granada

1. Visit the Alhambra, the ancient moorish palace, and its Generalife gardens

2. Visit the Albayzín, a World Heritage Site, on the school’s doorstep, and get a flavour for the Arabic part of the city

3. Go for tapas and taste the traditional foods of Granada

4. Visit the Sierra Nevada: ideal for walking in summer and skiing in winter

5. Visit the ‘mercadillo’, the sprawling markets of Granada

6. Visit the Mirador de San Nicolás, in the Albayzín, for some of the most well-known and spectacular views of the Alhambra

7. Visit the Sacromonte, high up on a hill with its cave dwellings and flamenco

8. Visit the beach: Granada is ideally situated between the mountains and the sea of the Tropical Coast

9. Go to the Realejo to admire the city’s graffiti: El Niño de las Pinturas creates true works of arts of the city’s walls around here.

10. Stop to listen to the buskers around the city: from violinists to impromptu flamenco sessions that start whilst walking through the streets, the people of Granada add character to the city through music.
