How to get Granada, How to get the School
The province of Granada holds an unimaginable quantity and variety of tourist attractions in an area of just 13,000 square kilometres: the Alhambra, the most visited monument in Spain and one of the most beautiful in the entire world; one of Europe’s best ski resorts is in the Sierra Nevada; and, just an hour and a half away by car, we swap the snow for the beaches of the Tropical Coast, which enjoy enviable temperatures all year round.
It is this diversity of climates, scenery, produce and resources which allow us to declare the province of Granada a tourism micro-continent. There are so many possibilities at any time of year: culture and historical monuments, rural and activity tourism, snow and sport, bucket and spade holidays, conferences and incentives, leisure, senior citizens…
The city of Granada bewitches visitors with its history and monuments. It has a top notch cultural calendar, a whole range of festivals and traditions, and a lively atmosphere generated by more than 60,000 students at Granada university.
For lovers of nature and rural tourism, the province is home to five natural parks and a national park. Peace and quiet which can be soaked up in the little villages in the Alpujarras, an almost unspoilt area, entice visitors to remain there forever. Inland areas, like the Marquesado and the Altiplano, show an incredible contrast between almost moonlike desert landscapes and the leafy vegetation of the surrounding hills. Granada Poniente, in the west of the province, has an enormous islamic heritage.
