Granda Alhambra I 10 Fun Things to do in Granada on a Budget

Where do you want to go?


Barcelona, the vibrant city home to beaches, great architecture, art and festivals!

Millions of visitors head to Las Ramblas to people watch, Sagrada Familia to see if it really is finished and Museu Picasso for the obvious.

We’ve got quite a few posts to help your best plan your trip to Barcelona:


The Spanish city of Granada is located in the south-east of Spain and is famous for its Alhambra Palace, flamenco dancing, and gratis tapas with every drink.

Granada is very close to the Sierra Nevada mountains, which are a great escape from the high temperature of summer and for winter sports come snow season.

Not only that but Granada is a short journey from the coastal towns of Malaga and Marbella so it’s not unheard of that Spaniards are skiing in the morning and sunbathing a night!


There is nowhere else in the worls quite like the white isle, Ibiza. 

Where else can you drink cocktails on the Sunset Strip in San Antonio, party at a superclub until dawn then catch the sunrise from Playa D’en Bossa on the other side of the island?
