Sight Seeing

Sight seeing in Granada & Sierra Nevada

Touristic sights in Granada & Sierra Nevada

Certainly, the prime activities in the Sierra Nevada are skiing and snowboarding. But apart from the excellent sports facilities, we recommend you to pay a visit to Granada, one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and all over Europe.

Its architecture, the history and its people are well-worth a visit. Below the mountains of Sierra Nevada you will find a lively metropole filled with Andalusian culture and beauty.

The Arabic castle Alhambra is enthroned on the highest point of the city of Granada. Created originally for military purposes by the Nasrite emirs starting in 1238, the Alhambra became an "alcazaba" (fortress), an "alcázar" (palace) and a small "medina" (city), all in one. 

A walk through the "Generalife" gardens and artistically decorated court yards allows you to get a good impression of a long past dynasty, accompanied by amazing panoramic views of the snow covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada in the background. 

It is necessary to pre-book your ticket for the Alhambra visit, long line-ups are not rare at any time of the year and only a limited number of visitors is allowed in at a time.
