Granada is known as the Muslim city par excellence in Spain (capital of Al-Andalus), but this is not the reality of this place. Granada is a mixture of cultures, where we can see what was Spain in the 15th century.
That is why within our city we can see from Islamic art to Renaissance art or Gothic art. It is also important that to know in depth all the history of Granada we locate where the information points are, both to ask questions and to consult new tourist activities.
Below are the four tourist offices where you can find information about the city of Granada and its surroundings.
It is located in Calle Cárcel Baja, next to the Cathedral of Granada. If you walk near this monument it is a good opportunity to go in and get information about towns near the city, how to get around Granada and its surroundings, get maps of the city or tourist brochures of the best-guided tours of the city.
The Sierra Nevada mountain range is 30 minutes away by car or 1 hour by bus. This mountain range has lovely views of the Vega de Granada. You can visit it without having to stay overnight because you have the possibility of going and coming back in specific buses that make three outward and three return trips a day.
After strolling along the “Paseo de Los Tristes“, situated below the Albaicin and Sacromonte, we can enter this office to get more information about the city and the whole province. You never know what wonders may be hidden in the province.
If we are more inclined to know the history of the province we can visit the Alpujarra of Granada, full of white villages preserving their original architecture, the heritage of the Muslim villages.
On the other hand, this province also provides us with a Geopark which we can visit if we are more interested in archaeology and geography. The northern part of the province of Granada invites us to discover a unique place in the European continent.
On the other hand, if we want a trip with time to relax and enjoy our surroundings, we have an obligatory stop in the Costa Tropical of Granada. This area becomes another different landscape full of exotic places, spectacular caves, and numerous Phoenician villages.
While visiting the cultural and economic centre of the city we can enter the Town Hall, located in the Plaza del Carmen. This is the best option to have our trip organised in perfect conditions, as they offer us the best places to taste the gastronomy of the city and the best hotels to stay in. We can also find a map of the city and several tourist guides and routes, such as our free tour.
To enjoy your visit, it is important to be well-fed, and what better way to take advantage of the flavours that the city has to offer. Gastronomic Granada is a mixture of Arab flavours and the raw materials of the Granada region.
The Alhambra, symbol of the city of Granada, a fortress of the Nasrid Kingdom, an intramural city full of numerous palaces and gardens. This information point is an obligatory stop when visiting the monument individually to get as much information as possible.
Another possibility to get to know every corner of the Alhambra, and thus ensure that we do not miss any detail, is our guided tour.
