The Most Beautiful Sights and Romantic Spots in Granada
Granada is home to many beautiful viewpoints and romantic places. As Ernest Hemingway once wrote, the sun goes lazily down in Granada, and it allows people to enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
Wander down its narrow and cobbled streets. Soak in the stunning views and its mysterious and poetic atmosphere, a source of inspiration for many artists.
One of the oldest quarters of Granada, with whitewashed houses and hidden little squares, this unique place has to be explored by foot and you will find great viewpoints for a romantic sunset.
It has been for centuries home to gypsies, bohemians and artists. Lose yourself in this mystical neighbourhood with amazing views and the best flamenco shows in town.
Just below the Alhambra, this place is surrounded by historical buildings and natural beauty. There is a romantic sitting area over the river Darro and many terraces where you can relax.
One of the most scenic streets of Granada that will take you by the river Darro with its beautiful old bridges and some remains of the Nasrid city, including the Arab bath: el Bañuelo.
The most famous viewpoint in Granada offers amazing views of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada, by the church of St. Nicholas, in the heart of the Albaycín quarter.
The oldest square in town is only 5 mins. away from the Alhambra forest. This historical place has a lot to offer itself, contemplate St. Ann's church and the Alhambra´s Tower of the Candle in the distance.
This secluded garden is the perfect oasis for a romantic getaway right by the Alhambra. Small ponds, leafy paths and amazing views sorround this historical mansion where weddings are held sometimes.
Historic gardens with coloured fountains at night and surrounded by beautiful buildings: the Royal Hospital and the Monument to the Virgin.
Alcaiceria Street is full of typical shops and souvenirs. Part of the former Arab Market. Worth a visit, and close to the Plaza Bip Rambla.
A modern area of Granada, but it has its charm with many tapas bars and summer terraces in the Plaza de Mariana Pineda and Campillo.
This place was the summer residence and now is the Garcia Lorca House-Museum and park situated on the border between countryside and city.
The heart-center of Granada, nice place to wander through, to eat and drink, explore souvenir shops and relax, safe place for children to play.
Small square with statue of Queen Isabel and Columbus, an impressive fountain and beautiful building around, central meeting point for the tours.

Opinions about Beauty Spots in Granada
Fantastic place to visitLoved 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).
I would recommend Granada for anyoneI have visited Granada many times and am always charmed by the warmth of the people there. It is better now that there are flights direct from Manchester as we used to fly from Liverpool, the bus still runs from the airport into the town, it's great.
If you love tapas you will love Granada, with some excellent bars and cafes and restaurants, so many to choose from. I love the choice near to the Hotel Navas, excellent !!
I would thoroughly recommend Granada for anyone wanting to take in a small Spanish City, with the stunning Alhambra Palace and Sierra Nevada mountains to visit, fantastic.
