Granada is a great city to enjoy with family and friends. It is also one of the cradles of flamenco. In the neighborhoods of Albaicin and Sacromonte you can still discover charming places with live shows. Do not hesitate and hire your rental car now.
Furauto allows you to pick up and drop off your rental van in key areas of the capital of Granada, such as the airport or the train or bus station. If you prefer, you can also return your vehicle in other parts of Andalusia:
Because this city is one of the most beautiful in Spain. Former capital of the Zirid and Nasrid Kingdoms, it still preserves the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984, together with the Albayzin district. Shopaholics should not miss the Alcaicería, a commercial area similar to an Arab souk.
After the reconquest by the Catholic Monarchs, the city continued to hold the title of capital of the Castilian Kingdom of Granada. The Cathedral of the Incarnation and the Royal Chapel, which houses the tombs of Isabella I of Castile, Ferdinand II of Aragon, Juana la Loca and Philip the Handsome, deserve special mention. It is also impressive to walk through the Sacromonte, visit the Cartuja Monastery and climb up to the Mirador de San Nicolas.
Outside the capital you can enjoy the ski resort of Sierra Nevada, spend the day in the villages of Las Alpujarras or sunbathe on the Costa Tropical. In all these places you can enjoy the magnificent Arab-Arabic-Andalusian cuisine, with Arab and Jewish influences.
The province of Granada has a lot to offer, and you will need several weeks to get to know all the charm of Granada. If you don't have that much time, start by visiting the following towns:
You will need 45 minutes to get from the capital to this town of about 3,500 inhabitants. Drive your rental van along the A-44 to the town of Peloteos. Once here, connect with the A-348 to enter one of the most famous villages of Granada. In addition to visiting the Church of the Virgen de la Encarnación, the ruins of the Castle, the fountains and the Barrio Hondillo, do not miss the Balneario de Lanjarón.
50 kilometers (about an hour) separate the capital of Granada from this town of just over 5,600 inhabitants. Located in the region of Loja, it is home to an extraordinary heritage that was declared a National Historic-Artistic Site in 1982. National Geographic named it as one of the 10 towns with the best views in the world, due in part to its church (a former Andalusian castle).
Drive your rental van along the A-44 to the municipality of Peloteos. Already in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, take the A-348 and the A-4132 to enter this small village of 318 inhabitants located in the heart of the Alpujarras. Stroll through its streets, full of whitewashed buildings and handmade jarapas in a multitude of colors. If you are looking for a partner, don't forget to visit the Chumpaneira fountain.
This town of 12,400 inhabitants is about 67 kilometers from the capital. To make this trip, you must drive your rental van on the A-44 southbound for about 40 minutes. Then take the A-7 to access this tourist town on the coast. Here you will discover the Salobreña Castle, the Municipal Archaeological Museum, the Paseo de las Flores viewpoint, the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario, etc.
The A-44 also connects the capital of Granada with Velez de Benaudalla in just over 45 minutes. A town visited by climbers and lovers of outdoor sports, it also has a mosque (the remains of it) and the Nasrid Garden, with more than 500 years of history.
Then in Furauto we will have a detail with our customers reviewing some of the main road access to Granada. We are aware that when you have never driven to a place to plan how to get there can be stressful so we hope this information is helpful:
As in Furauto know our customers we are convinced that they are concerned that something unpleasant happens to our rental vehicles when choosing parking. That is why we have compiled a list of some of the parking in Granada. Safety and comfort when parking, all in one!
In Granada there are certain limitations to vehicular traffic that must be taken into account when moving around the city. However, these limitations are focused almost exclusively in areas of tourist interest so it is unlikely to affect our users if they have rented a van with a view to moving or transporting belongings and goods.
The areas with the greatest difficulties of accessibility by car are basically three: the city center, the Realejo and the Albaycín. Nothing out of the ordinary if one takes into consideration the special protection of historic areas against the adverse effects of pollution in many Spanish cities. In any case, be careful with the bollards and the license plate cameras.
