When to go
Spring and autumn are the best seasons to visit as the climate and crowds are less intense. During July and August temperatures can reach 40˚C and it has been known to snow in the city during the winter.
PlanesBritish Airways and Iberia fly via Madrid to Granada-Jaén airport | just 17 kilometres outside the city | near the small town of Santa Fe. Internal flights to and from Barcelona also operate regularly. Malaga airport | an hour or so from the city | carries many more international flights.
TrainsThere are no high speed lines connecting Granada’s central station with other Spanish cities – it can take over five hours to get to Madrid.
AutomobilesNarrow-streeted Granada is not a motorist-friendly city and certain areas are closed to all vehicles other than taxis and buses. If you do come by road | find a secure car park to stash your vehicle.
TaxisAlthough cabs are flaggable in the street, it can be tricky to pin one down in the evening, so try one of the ranks close to Granada’s big-name attractions, such as Alhambra, or call Teleradio Taxi Granada on +34 958 280654.
