Useful city facts

Summers are very hot - the average temperature is 26°C  (78°F) in July, the warmest month, but individual days can see temperatures rise to 40°C (104°F). Precipitation is almost nonexistent from June to August. Winters are mild, but humid, with the average temperature being 7°C (44°F) in January, the coldest month. Snowfall is not uncommon in the nearby mountains. 
  • Granada has a population of around 230,000 people, with another 700,000 living in Province of Granada. The city is made up of several old, distinct neighborhoods, such as Realejo, the old Jewish quarter; Bib-Rambla, the location of the old Arab bazaar that is nowadays a foodie paradise full of high-class restaurants; Sacromonte, a unique area inhabited by the city’s Gitano or Roma population, a center for flamenco music, and unique for its cave houses dug in hills; and Albayzin, the location of the ancient City of Elvira.

Top destinations and activities

  • The Alhambra. One of the main attractions of not only Granada, but all of Spain, visiting Alhambra is an experience of a lifetime. Built by the Islamic Moors who ruled the area for centuries, the Alhambra is a made up of a palace and fortress as well as gardens, towers, courts, and other structures. The complex is incredibly impressive as a whole, but it is its many fine details of ornaments, Islamic calligraphy, and arabesques that make Alhambra the historic and architectural jewel that it is. It’s a good idea to book a tour and tickets in advance, you can do that on Alhambra’s official website. 
  • Granada Cathedral. Also known as the Cathedral of the Incarnation, the second-largest church in Spain is a fine example of Spanish Renaissance architecture. Built in the 16th Century after Granada was no longer under Moorish rule, Granada Cathedral soon gained the status as one of the symbols of the city and retains that to this day.
  • Plaza de Bib-Rambla. Perhaps the most important square of Granada, it was built by the Moors. Over the centuries, it has hosted everything from open-air markets and different festivals to Christian processions. Nowadays the square is a calm and relaxing place known for its beautiful fountains and for the great restaurants found in and around it.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The car’s documentation and proof of insurance must be inside the vehicle at all times.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Sierra Nevada National Park. Perhaps the most famous national park in Spain, Sierra Nevada is best known for its skiing opportunities. Even if you’re not visiting in winter, there’s plenty to do, from hiking the mountain paths to trying to spot animals like the Spanish ibex, the Eurasian eagle-owl, and the European wildcat. The national park is located just 10km (6.2 mi) east of Granada and can be reached in about 10 minutes.
  • Costa del Sol. The most famous coastal area of Spain, Costa del Sol is a beach paradise. With plenty of scenic little towns like Fuengirola and Torremolinos, fun crowded spots with coastal restaurants, and plenty of opportunities for water sports, the area offers the best beach vacation in Europe. Malaga, Costa del Sol’s largest city, is located 124km (77 mi) southwest of Granada and can be reached in approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes by car.
  • Cordoba. Another metropolis of Muslim Spain, Cordoba doesn’t have the Alhambra, but is otherwise perhaps an even more pure example of Moorish architecture than Granada. If you’re fascinated by this heritage then Mezquita, a mosque-turned-cathedral, is simply a must-see. More than that, Cordoba also boasts a well-preserved Jewish quarter. About 200km (125 mi) northwest of Granada, Cordoba can be reached in a little more than two hours.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car type in Granada is a mini, followed by economy and standard. The most popular rental cars are the Fiat 500, the Opel Corsa, and the Peugeot 108.

Further destinations

  • Seville. Andalucia’s capital, located on the river Guadalquivir or Betis, is one of Spain’s ancient cities. According to legend, it was founded by the Greek hero Heracles, and was later ruled by the Phoenicians, Romans, and Moors. Besides this epic heritage, it is also famous as one of the birthplaces of Flamenco music, a center for bullfighting, and as the scene of the most passionate Spanish football derby, which is contested by the city’s two famous teams, Sevilla and Betis. Located 250km (155 mi) west of Granada, Sevilla can be reached in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
  • Ronda. A small town in Andalusia, Ronda is best known for its deep river gorge and Puente Nuevo, an impressive stone bridge that crosses it. Populated since the Neolithic Age and ruled by different empires, it is now a quiet and picturesque place with only 30,000 inhabitants. Located 180km (112 mi) southwest of Granada, Ronda can be reached by car in about two hours.
  • Algarve. A beautiful and wild place, Portugal’s southernmost region is famous for its long stretches of Atlantic coastline, fun beach towns like Albufeira and Lagos, and impressive national parks. Less known, but equally impressive, is the region’s Roman and Moorish heritage and sparsely-populated highlands away from the coast. Traveling with a rental car, you’ll be able to see all of it. Faro, Algarve’s capital, is about 450km (279 mi) west of Granada and can be reached in under five hours by car. Since you’ll be crossing the border between Spain and Portugal, ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it.
