What you'll do
This magnificent 2-3+ hour circular trail delivers breathtaking views of Granada and the surrounding countryside. Meeting at Plaza Nueva in the center of Granada we will start our journey walking along the historic Rio Genil with its cobbled streets & grand churches. Passing over the river we will quickly ascend uphill and find ourselves off the tourist trail and walking up into the hills overlooking the city. From here our initial exertion will be rewarded with a comfortable hour long level walk following the ancient acequia (traditional Moorish water channel that feeds the Alhambra), and then again we climb up to a lookout point with exceptional views of the Granada valley. Next, we will cross through olive groves and meadows to look down on the Alhambra, before descending down a wide pass that takes us past the Alhambra Palace and back, where we began into the center of Granada.
We have been living in and loving Granada City and the surrounding province for many years. We have made it our ambition to explore every street and path in and around the city, finding routes and spots hidden away and off the tourist trails. We love meeting new people and showing them our favorite parts of beautiful Granada.
