Flamenco, tapas and stunning nature - Granada
Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the heart of Andalusia, Granada is the capital of the Granada province. Granada is surrounded with stunning nature scenery and is often considered one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. A former Muslim stronghold, the city has a long history with the ancient Moorish inhabitants where it got its name after the Pomegranate fruit.
Granada is a great travel destination that offers an excellent blend of traditional cultures, a vibrant nightlife and fascinating sights, including the stunning Alhambra palace. Walking through the city’s narrow alleyways filled with hypnotic tunes of Flamenco music gives everyone a small taste of the energetic Spanish culture. Being a smaller city makes Granada’s atmosphere extra friendly, and despite its size, has a lively student population that fills up the bars and cafés throughout the city. On top of that, the locals have earned a reputation of being fun-loving party animals that know exactly how to enjoy their lives.
For an authentic experience of southern Spanish culture, Granada offers it all: stunning sceneries, siestas, flamenco and tapas. Exploring the city by foot is the ideal way to grasp the city’s beauty and we at freetour.com recommend everyone to take a free walking tour with an insightful local to get an insiders perspective.
