Granada is a beautiful and interesting city in Andalusia in Spain. It is situated in the south of Spain, approximately 75km from the south coast. With its wealth of culture and history, holidays in Granada are popular with couples and families wanting to learn a little more about Spain's history.
Granada gained important infrastructure from the Romans, including aqueducts and roads, and was an early centre of civilisation. It has since experienced both Islamic and Christian rule, which has contributed to its diverse and beautiful architecture, and although much of it was destroyed as a result of economic slumps, some remains and it is worth visiting.
Package holidays in Granada are ideal for those looking to experience the city without any added expense. There is an eclectic mix of hotels and accommodation in the city that allow you to be immersed in the quirky architecture while providing the comfortable surroundings that you look for on a holiday. Granada offers something for everyone all year round with a range of package holiday deals available during the hot summer months. In winter, resorts in Granada offer skiing and other winter sports in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains which are some of the highest across Europe.
In the evenings there are flamenco dancers to watch and local 'tabernas' for a quiet drink, as well as some fantastic restaurants serving a smorgasbord of delicious Spanish food. A key aspect of Spanish cuisine to be experienced in Granada is tapas, and it can be found in abundance and is almost always great value. One of the highlights of the city is the bullfighting ring that is open to walk around and to learn more about the ancient form of public entertainment, while those wanting to relax can head to the stunning Hammam Arab Baths.
