Here are 5 towns in the province of Granada that deserve to be visited
It is a fact that Granada is one of the milestones of a trip to Andalusia. It is equally true that often, and Andalusia is no exception, the villages offer different emotions, simpler, but still emotions.
Countries are often the best representatives of a province's cuisine, art and traditions. For this reason we have decided to put together the 5 towns in the province of Granada that are worth a visit.
Alhama of Granada
This village is located at the foot of the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park. It is an ideal visit for hiking lovers and spa lovers. In fact, in Alhama de Granada there are some very famous Arab baths, as they are located on the remains of the ancient Roman baths. It is not for nothing that ALHAMA derives from "AL-HAMA" which in Arabic means "The bathroom". To visit the Mayor de la Encarnacion church, the Caño Wamba fountain, the Hospital de la Reina and the Casa de la Inquisicion.
This little town it is located in the Poqueira gorge and together with Bubiòn and Capileira it is part of a historical and artistic complex that has maintained the Berber aspect in its architecture. Slate roofs and narrow streets where water canals flow. Spectacular views, beautiful walks and beautiful (and cheap) handicrafts make this village a real gem.
Considered to be one of the most beautiful in all of Spain. The Arab fortress and the Church de la Villa are the 2 most important things. Montefrío has a great landscape richness: valleys, woods, rocky walls and vegetation. Everything a keen hiker would pay for in gold is there, available in Montefrío. If, on the other hand, you are passionate about history, visit the megalithic complex of Neolithic origin.
Historically it is one of the most characteristic towns of the Andalusian Mediterranean coast, above all thanks to the great Arab-Spanish fortress. In this location on the Tropical coast, there are beautiful beaches that can be "exploited" from April to October. The mild climate favors the cultivation of tropical fruit such as mango and avocado.
Town located 1000 meters above sea level is considered one of the most beautiful in the province. An almost labyrinthine town, made up of the characteristic decorated white houses. Being very close to the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, Güéjar Sierra presents corners of true unspoiled nature. You can go from the high mountain to the Maitena river, in an instant. An ideal place for families looking for relaxation… without exaggerating.
So take a day out and, if you can, take a trip to one of these quaint towns in the province of Granada!
