Travel tips for Granada tours

What are some interesting things to do on a trip to Granada?

Here are a few fun ways travelers on Granada tours can explore the historic city in southern Spain.

  • Visit the Alhambra. Travelers who book our Barcelona, Madrid & Seville tour and opt to visit Granada on its extension can explore this imposing palace complex—the Moorish sultans’ last stronghold in Spain.

 Check out Travel on TV: Game of Thrones for more about the Alhambra.

  • Explore the Generalife. Wondering where to go in Granada to see how royals once relaxed? Situated near the Alhambra, the Generalife served as a place of leisure for kings of Granada when they wanted a break from official palace business.
  • Go people-watching in Plaza Nueva. If you want to enjoy some people-watching when you visit Granada, the city’s oldest square is the ideal spot.
  • Take a look around the Bañuelo. These well-preserved Arab baths are believed to have been built in the 11th century. They’re also among the attractions that make Granada one of Europe’s best hidden gems to visit.
  • See burial sites at the Royal Chapel. History buffs who travel to Granada can visit the city’s Royal Chapel, which was built in the early 16th century and served as a burial site for Catholic monarchs.
  • Take in a Flamenco show. Granada is a cultural hub of Flamenco, and travelers who book Granada tour packages can take in a show at a local tablao.
  • Browse La Alcaicería market. Travelers searching for souvenirs from their Granada vacations can find them in this bustling bazaar, where vendors sell everything from ceramics to stained-glass lamps.

What are the best things to pack for a tour in Granada?

If you plan to visit Granada, be sure to add these essentials to your suitcase.  

  • Comfortable walking shoes. Many Granada tours include a good bit of walking on cobblestone streets and older, uneven surfaces. Bring sturdy shoes to keep your feet in tip-top shape.
  • A camera. Architecture enthusiasts who travel on any of our tours to Granada will want to snap pictures of the historic and Moorish structures for which the city is known.
  • Sun protection. While traveling on our Granada guided tours, you’re likely to spend time outside exploring the city’s highlights. Be sure to pack a brimmed hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun, which can be strong in southern Spain.
  • A reusable water bottle. Bringing a refillable water bottle will ensure you stay hydrated while enjoying walking tours in Granada.  
  • A light shawl. Use this light layer to cover your arms and shoulders when visiting Granada’s religious sites.

What are some common dishes to order in Granada?

A highlight of our trips to Granada is exploring the city’s history and culture through its cuisine. Here are a few dishes to try when you visit.

  • Tapas. These shareable, small plates are a staple of Spanish cuisine, and a must-try when you visit Granada on tour.
  • Churros. Typically eaten for breakfast or as a snack, these sticks of fried dough are sprinkled with cinnamon and, often, dipped in melted chocolate.  
  • Habas con jamón. This simple, hearty, and flavorful dish is made by sauteing broad beans with bits of cured Serrano ham.
  • Gazpacho. Once considered peasant food, this cold soup, which is made by blending raw vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers, is now recognized as an Intangible World Heritage by UNESCO.
  • Moorish desserts. Arabic-style desserts, containing ingredients such as sugar, almonds, and cinnamon, are popular and easy to find in Granada. A few to try include meringue-like soplillos de la Alpujarra; torrijas, a bread-based dish that’s similar to French toast; and piononos, a dessert named for Pope Pius IX consisting of rolled-up sponge cake that’s bathed in syrup and topped with toasted cream.

What are important things to know before visiting Granada?
  • Language can be tricky. In Granada, locals use a lot of slang and drop the ends of many words, so don’t be discouraged if you have trouble picking up the local dialect or if you find that the Spanish you’ve studied doesn’t always translate. Simply try your best and locals will appreciate the effort.  
  • Watch your valuables.  In crowded areas, such as at popular attractions and busy markets, keep a close eye on valuables, such as your phone and credit cards, to avoid pickpocketing.
