It is an ideal season to discover the towns of the Alpujarra Granadina, a 70 km long valley located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, between the provinces of Granada and Almería. Here you will discover a set of picturesque villages, spectacular landscapes and trails to go.
With almost 700 meters of altitude and the proximity to the Sierra Nevada, the temperatures of Granada can drop to 0 degrees in winter, with a dry cold that can be overcome without problems well dressed. Unlike the idea that is usually had of the Andalusian cities, very hot and summery, the province of Granada also has its charm in winter because, thanks to its geographical position, it offers the possibility of doing different activities, such as skiing in the Sierra Nevada.
Visiting Granada in December is highly recommended, since you will be able to experience the beautiful Christmas atmosphere. In the streets the Christmas lights are turned on and Bib-Rambla street is home to many stalls of the Christmas market. Take advantage of this season to try the typical Christmas sweets, along with a hot chocolate during the colder afternoons.
Planning a trip to Granada in winter is a good idea, since it can coincide with the celebrations of the arrival of the Three Kings and take a few days to enjoy the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada National Park is the largest Spanish national park and also the southernmost in Europe. It is well connected to the city, thanks to several daily bus lines that lead to the Park from the city of Granada and the other provinces. If you love mountains and winter sports, it is a place that you cannot miss, since it has many schools for skiing, snowboarding and even ice skating rinks.
During the month of February you will have the possibility to visit the city in total tranquility and discover its museums during rainy days. Among them are the Museum of Fine Arts, the Cathedral of Granada and the places that marked the life of the poet and playwright Federico García Lorca from Granada. In the capital is the Federico García Lorca Center and in the province the Natal Museum-House.
