The mighty Alhambra fortress is one of Spain’s most famous sights, and if you really love this country then it’s something you can’t afford to miss! Luckily I’ve got just the Granada break for you. ;)
I spotted some fantastic accommodation on Loveholidays that’s got everything you’ll ever need. At the Marquis Urban you’ve got, spacious interiors, great views and a location right in the heart of the city! Plus you’ll be flying from Dublin to Malaga with the flights that are included with this fantastic deal!
Granada may be pint-sized, but its small size is more than made up for with its wealth of cultural attractions. Let’s start with the Alhambra: this stunning Moorish fortress overlooks the city and the Sierra Nevada mountains and features beautiful courtyards and tranquil gardens. There’s also the old Bañuelo, a set of Arab baths that date all the way back to the 11th Century, as well as the lovely cathedral and the historic Albaycin district.
Since you’ve got 4 days you’ve got time to really delve into the local culture. Head to the neighbourhood of Sacromonte to see a few flamenco shows, or do as the locals do and dig into some tapas – you’ll quite often get a free portion with your drink, so you’ll be able to sample all sorts of amazing treats during your time here!
This is the definitive Spanish experience – if you’ve not done it yet then you’re missing out! Just click the links below to book your apartment and flights separately, but make sure you book the flights included in the screenshot so you’ve got plenty of time to make your way to Granada from the airport. :)
