The historic city of Granada, dominated by the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Moorish Alhambra Palace, can be reached in around 35 minutes drive from Casa Buena Vista. For those wanting to leave the car behind, there is a regular bus service running from Saleres direct to Granada.

There is a further bus connecting the city centre with the Alhambra Palace, which is only a short distance away, but a challenging uphill walk!

The Palace is one of Spain's most visited tourist attractions, due to its intricate Moorish architecture and the elaborately designed and immaculately maintained gardens. Guided tours around the Palace and gardens are available in English and other languages. Alternatively, you can wander around at your leisure. No holiday to this region of Spain is complete without a visit to the Palace!

The hilltop location of the Palace also affords stunning views of the city and the surrounding countryside. There are also excellent viewpoints of the Palace itself in the city, as shown in the photograph opposite.

Granada is an attractive city, with many interesting sights and attractions. It also benefits from all the usual facilities of a European city including theatres, cinemas, night clubs, hypermarkets, other leisure activities and excellent shopping.

The Albaycin  area of the city is the African quarter, where there are a large selection of shops offering unusual souvenirs and clothing not readily available elsewhere. There are also a number of African bars and restaurants offering authentic and deliciously exotic food and drinks in a very different atmosphere.

There is also a water park in Granada to help cool the children down in the hot weather. Or, for something different, how about an evening spent dining and watching Flamenco dancing!

Casa Buena Vista is an ideal rural house ( casa rural ) from which to explore Granada.

There are also a number of places to visit beyond Granada, although still within comfortable reach. For example, Guadix is a large pleasant town with some lovely buildings and a relaxed atmosphere. For an unusual experience, take a trip to the area of town comprising of a community of cave houses. There is a museum here, and some of the locals are happy to show you around their houses for a small donation. Young and old alike will be fascinated!

There is also the Sierra Nevada mountains and the ski resort to explore, but this is covered elsewhere on this site.
