Opinions about Province of Granada
Visit Valle de Lecrin
Granada is much more than the Alhambra, the nature here is amazing. But you would need a car to move around.

You should visit Valle de Lecrin (several villages), a region between Motril and Granada. This area is famous for the production of the exquisite oranges; the smell of orange blossoms pervades the whole area when spring comes.

The castle of Zoraya, the Castle of Murchas and the church of Mondújar are other attractions.
Granada's prettiest villages
The province of Granada has many wonderful unknown places to go hiking such as the rivers Dilar, Durcal (only 20 km from Granada) and Rio Verde (a bit further), a peaceful escape for viewing wilderness and nature.

There are many interesting towns such as Guadix famous for its white painted cave houses, the castle of Loja, Montefrio is very special and of course the villages of the Alpujarra. The Alpujarra is unique, you will not find another place like this in Europe.

I'll be back again.
