Stores/shops to go to
- Albaicin shops-pictured above
- Hipercor – part of the huge department store, Corte Ingles, it has a huge grocery store where you can find pretty much anything you want. More variety than the smaller grocers. But if you want good peanut butter go to Lidl.
- Go shopping in the center of town near Puerta Real. Lots of good clothing/shoe shops.
- ALSA bus from Granada bus station can take you almost anywhere in Spain
- Flights to/from Malaga are usually cheaper than to/from Granada
- City bus system is easy to use, but you can walk to almost everywhere in the city
Random things to know
- If you don’t already know, Granada is famous for it’s tapas, and for good reason. If you buy a drink, you get a free tapa (small plate of food/appetizer) with it
- If you want to go see the Alhambra April-June, buy tickets well in advance because they sell out fast
- Lots of stores close in the middle of the day for siesta and almost nothing is open in Sundays (except some bars/restaurants/small convenient stores).
