Granada's contrasting geography covers 12.500 km² and reaches vertiginous heights. The Penibética range, which is the highest in the Iberian Peninsula (Mulhacén peak reaches 3.478 metres) and the seaside cliffs are prime examples of this.
Granada also has landscapes that vary from the snow, to the sea, passing through the Alpujarra (with thermal baths in Lanjarón), and abundant forest. Almuñecar and Salobreña are outstanding seaside towns, whilst Motril and Castell de Ferro, or the extensive beaches of Albuñol and La Rábita, are not less noteworthy. Granada region includes striking natural landscapes to explore such as the Sierra Nevada, where it is possible to ski and go to the beach all in the same day.

Granada - fiestas and Alhambra

Holy Week has been officially declared a "Holiday of Interest to the Tourist" and is one of Granada's best festivities. On Wednesday of Holy Week, there is a procession called "Christ of the Gypsies" or "Christ of Sacromonte". Other processions of interest include the Procession of Silence held at midnight on Thursday of Holy Week, departing from the Church of San Pedro on the Carrera del Darro, and Procession of Las Angustias on Saturday of Holy Week. May 3rd is the Festival of Crosses, a very popular celebration. Crosses made of flowers are placed in the streets, while courtyards of the houses are also adorned.
Between May and June, the Corpus Christi Fair, the biggest festival in the city, is celebrated. Typical Andalusian dress is worn; horse–drawn carriages are used, and there is dancing at the stalls of the fair. The last Sunday in September is the Festival of the Virgen de las Angustias, patron saint of the city. Open–air dances, bullfights and processions are held.
Granada boasts one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe, the amazing palace-fortress of Alhambra. A must see site for anyone travelling to the area. However, the province has more to see and visit than just its monumental capital.
