Located in the south of Europe, in the western part of Andalusia in Spain, is situated one of the most attractive places on the continent – the province of Granada.

Without doubt, the most striking characteristic of Granada is the large amount of contrasts you can find there. The most remarkable are the snow-covered peaks surrounding Granada, which are the highest mountains of the Iberian Peninsula. They are located just 70 kilometers away from the Costa Tropical. The cold winters in the interior contrast with the hot summers at the beaches, too.

Granada city is a meeting point for lovers of culture: the city boasts museums, theatres, concerts and a cultural event plan which expands all the time during the year.

The Alhambra is a beautiful complex of buildings and gardens. Its leafy tree-lined walkways provide pleasant shade and coolness, enhanced by the abundance of water that flows in its streams.

The Generalife  was an ideal for holding and rest, with a core of residential building and a vast expanse of cropland and pasture. Four large terraces with gardens, building on their orographic profiles.

Events such as the international music and dance festival, the tango festival, the jazz festival and the festival of young film-makers have become hugely important events to a lot of people.

The Teatro Alhambra contains a constant theatre programme and in the Auditorio Manuel de Falla the renowned orchestra of the city of Granada offers a complete and varied annual programme.

You can enjoy flamenco, one of the defining characteristics of Granada, every day in the caves of Sacromonte where it is performed in the famous traditional Gypsy shows.

The Parque de las Ciencias offers both adults and  young children the chance to discover the exciting world of science and our universe.
