Granada, an important university place, is without doubt one of the most fascinating cities in southern Spain. With its world-famous Alhambra, rich culture and lively nightlife, it is the ideal place for both studying and taking a holiday.
Enjoy a day in Sierra Nevada mountains (30 minutes from Granada city) or the Mediterranean coast called here Costa Tropical (less than 1 hour from Granada); watch gypsy flamenco in Sacromonte or dance salsa in one of Granada’s many exciting bars; visit the Arabic baths; stroll through the narrow streets of the old Moorish quarter of the Albaicín: these are just a few of the many possibilities.
At the end of the day, enjoy a glass of red wine with a tapa in one of the small squares looking over the Alhambra and the beautiful snow-covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
A tapa is a type of appetizer which is served when you order a drink. Serving tapas to customers is a typical Spanish tradition preserved through the whole of Spain. In some cities, such as Granada, the tapas are free.
