I don’t know if it’s because I’m from Granada and Andalusia, but for me Granada has much more to visit besides the Alhambra and the city. We are lucky to have in the same province culture, beach and mountain. I could make an endless list of places and beautiful villages to admire, but since you come for tourism, and not to live, I will mention the essentials. So if you are so lucky to have more than a couple of days to enjoy this magnificent city, here are other places that deserve a visit:
SIERRA NEVADA. (32KM = 40 MIN)
Sierra Nevada is the highest mountainous massif of the peninsula. Its highest peak is the Mulhacen (3482m) and has the most southern ski resort in Europe. You can drive to the altitude of 2500 meters and here you can decide between spending a day at the skiing station or leaving the car in the free parking at the height of the Virgen de las Nieves and spend a great day with sledges.
