Granada was the last city to fall to the Christians in 1492. It has many wonderful buildings from this time including the Cathedral with the Royal chapel, the Monastery of La Cartuja and many churches built in the unique 'Mudejar' style. The hill facing the Alhambra is the old Moorish casbah, called the Albaicin, a maze of narrow streets and whitewashed houses with inner courtyards, all beautifully tiled. At its highest point is the Plaza de San Nicolas, famous for its splendid view of the Alhambra palace. The Palace is often hailed as the most exciting, sensual and romantic of all European monuments. The ski resort of Pradollano has 87km of pisted slopes and being a modern resort plenty of snow machines. The resort base is at 2100m with the top station at 3300m. There is plenty of opportunity to enjoy other sports such as climbing canoeing, rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, par ascending, horse riding & bird watching.

Ski: The Sierra Nevada ski resort is the is the most southerly ski resort in Europe. The facilities are considered top rate and it has, therefore, hosted numerous national and international ski events. The resort has numerous runs of varying difficulties to satisfy all levels of skiers. Natural snow is supplemented by snow cannons on some runs. Depending on the snow levels, the season generally runs from the end of November or the beginning of December until sometime in April. On a clear sunny day, which are many, you can see across the Mediterranean to the mountains of Africa. Most skiers come from Madrid and the cities of Andalucía. According to the statistics, 80 percent of the visitors were Spanish. Out of the 20 percent of foreigners skiing Sierra Nevada, 30 percent were British. Avoid the last week of February as children from schools across Andalucia have one week off school, presumably to enjoy the snow and go skiing, which is why it’s called “White Week” (Semana Blanca).
