Granada's privileged geographical position makes it
the starting point for a whole host of excursions, both inside
and outside the province. The ambitious programme of routes
opened up by the cultural programme The Legacy of al-Andalus has shown that, using Granada as historical centre, one can
tour round a world of fascinating places.
Here we will perhaps mention those which on no account should be missed: Sierra Nevada, well known during the ski season, though also well worth a visit in summer; the Alpujarras, Granada's costa tropical; or the nucleus formed by the towns of Guadix and Baza. Along with these essential sights do not forget Montefrío, La Calahorra, Loja, Riofrío and many other towns which in themselves offer a fine day out.
