Granada for young people: nightlife and studios
Granada is the favourite destiny in Europe for Erasmus students. The University of Granada receives the higher number of students of Erasmus program in all of Europe. Perhaps because the cost of living of the city is truly cheap compared with other European cities. Maybe it’s is boiling nightlife that attracts many young people.

The religious festivity merges with the ancient and cultural custom. The people show their devotion to religious figures or simply like to see the promenade of the devotes beside the music band. The folkloric set is appreciated due to its beauty and because of deep feelings that the festivity produces.
Festivity of Corpus
Another festivity with religious origin but nowadays it has lost this concept. Now it means fair, folkloric music and dresses and “rebujito” (which is a mix of soda and local wine).
The origin of this festivity mix religion and paganism. Currently, the local residents perform a cross with an original design and include some ornaments around. The people enjoy looking the beauty of the cross in addition to listening typical Spanish music while drinks.
Pilgrimage of Saint Cecilio
Well, not be surprised if I tell you that this festivity has its origin in… religion, of course. Every 1 of February, the local resident like going up to visit the Abadía del Sacromonte (literally translated as Abbey of the holy hill). Finally, the people show their devotion to the local saint of San Cecilio.
The magnificent Sierra Nevada is about 30 minutes far from Granada. Get your car hire Hotel Albero and don’t miss the opportunity of visiting the highest peaks of Spanish peninsula.

We suppose visiting monuments and historic buildings is your preference. Granada is absolutely famous for the Arabic fortress of La Alhambra. But in this city, there are many places worthwhile to visit.
The summer and resting villa of Arab kings when they dominated Granada. This palatial area is composed of historic buildings, magnificent gardens and beautiful patios. The structures for water use are essential in Generalife, as well as other Arabic builds. Have a walk by its gardens and take a picture from the balconies, feel deeply sensations inside you. It’s something absolutely magical.
The Carmen de los Mártires
The concept of “Carmen”, in addition to a feminine name, was the ancient name of an Arab property composed by a house and surrounding gardens. This one is the most beautiful of Granada and it is composed by a little palace, romantic gardens and magnificent views of Granada city besides Sierra Nevada.
The Cathedral and Royal Chapel
The construction of the Cathedral began in 1523. But it was not until the eighteenth century when it was completed. That’s why this cathedral has 3 different styles: first Gothic, following Renaissance and finally Baroque. This is the mayor Christian building in the city and it meant the triumph of Christianity over the Muslim religion.
The Royal Chapel was an original idea of Catholic kings, who conquered Granada from Muslim domination. So they decided to rest after death at the new Chapel attached to the Cathedral.
Outside the urban area, on a hill whose original name was Valparaíso, some relics of disciples of the Apostle Santiago were found in 1526. In addition to these relics, mysterious plumb books appeared, which spoke of the martyrdom of Saint Cecilio. This event surprised at all the local residents that ran to Valparaiso hill to rise a cross in devotion to Saint Cecilio. More than 1200 crosses were raised up in his honour, of which only four remain. The current name of Sacromonte means “holy-hill”
Nowadays an Abbey is in this place to remind these first Christians in Granada. The building became a centre of high studies and wisdom but it was closed like a centre of studies in last century. Currently, is a residence of priests besides a museum of religious art. Every 1st of February the people from Granada goes to the abbey because of festivity of pilgrimage of Saint Cecilio
Carrera del Darro and Paseo de los Tristes
Some people think that the street named Carrera del Darro is the most beautiful street in the world. Obviously, it’s just an opinion, but you can imagine how wonderful this place can be.
After the end of Carrera del Darro, you can find the Paseo de los Tristes that means “promenade of sad people”. This name belongs to the ancient era because it was the usual way to the cemetery. Nowadays, it’s one of the prefered places to take a coffee where you can enjoy beautiful views of the Alhambra. The square is shared sometimes with some people who like playing music to earn some coins.
The neighbourhood of Albayzin
The ancient neighbourhood of Albayzin is, after La Alhambra, the greatest jewel of Granada city. We can not resume all of its several places to spend some time enjoying the views and the surrounds. Some of them are: Mirador de San Nicolás, Dar Al-Horra palace, the Zirí ancient wall, the Arrabal of Teterías, door of Fajalauza, ancient Arab bath of El Bañuelo… And hundreds more of them which deserves a book for each one.
The neighbourhood of Realejo
The ancient neighbourhood of Jewish inhabitants, here you can find numerous artistic and historic buildings that deserve a visit. In this historical area is located La Alhambra and a small Arab fortification of surveillance called La Silla del Moro. (The Moorish chair).
The neighbourhood of Sacromonte
As we said recently, the name means “holy-hill” and currently is inhabited by oldies, bohemians and gipsy people. In this area, there are very common the caves where the people live. Some of these are refurbished like a local business where you can enjoy a folkloric performance of Flamenco dancing, singing and music.
Granada Alhambra Tickets
You have little likelihood of success if you want to buy your Alhambra tickets on the same day of the visit. So we recommend you to buy some weeks prior to your visit through Alhambra tickets official web. Buying tickets by a touristic agency is much more expensive.

Cold in winter (remember that we are in Spain, cold is a relative concept) and too hot in summer. Too hot means that is usual to reach 40ºC in July and August.
The rains period goes from autumn to spring, but the coldest months of winter like January and February are not wet. Anyway, we have to remind you that Granada climate is almost desertic because the average rains per year are less than 500 litres. But tons of sun will make you feel happy and unstressed. So some fresh drinks in summer and a coat in winter will help you to survive in this Spanish climate of Granada.
