Opinions about Beauty Spots in Granada
Fantastic place to visit
Loved visiting Granada, been several times. the city is a fantastic place to visit, steeped in history it will always have a place in our hearts. on each and every visit that we've made we have always been made welcome. The people of Granada are a credit to Spain and the Spanish way of life.

Sadly we can no longer get flights to Granada from our part of England (Liverpool and East Midlands) If flights were to resume you would find us on the first plane. So thank you to the people of Granada for making our visits so memorable (Cliff).
