Granada stands where the foothills of the Sierra Nevada meet the fertile Vega
de Granada, the greenest stretch of farmland in Andalucía. Only 100 km away from the Mediterranean Sea with a population of nearly 300.000, it is also a popular university town with more than
60.000 students a year.
Granada is know for its craftsmanship producing handmade quality products such as guitars, pottery, board games and other products in wood. With a network of steep erratic streets, its a great place to stroll take in the smells of jasmine and enjoy the free-tapas culture. Most of its secrets lie behind the tall walls of its typical house-patio complexes, know as camenes. The pretty Plaza de Bib-Rambla is full of flower stands and toy shops, with an unusual fountain. The Old Quarter (Parte Vieja) and the Albayzin district, which are both known for their al fresco dining and endless array of shops.
