Getting to Granada

Print E-mail

By plane

Iberia provides daily flights to and from Madrid and Barcelona from the airport situated 12 kilometer, half an hour with normal traffic, from the city. There are also budget flights to and from London Stanstead, Liverpool, East Midlands, Girona, Frankfurt and Milano airports by Ryan Air, from Gatwick by Monarch, from Barcelona airport by Clickair and from Barcelona, Rome and Paris airports by Vueling.

Connection to the city centre can be either by taxi (about 20€) or by a bus (3€). The bus takes about half an hour to reach its final destination, which is Palacio de Congresos. It leaves roughly on the hour but will generally be hitched up to a plane arrival. It has about 12 stops throughout Granada city centre including Gran Via de Colon (opposite the cathedral) and Tofu. You can catch it back from stop 1a on Gran Via de Colon (next to stop 1).

By bus

Regular buses run from Seville as well as some to Córdoba and a few direct services to the port of Algeciras. Malaga is well serviced by buses and is a good place to transit by, if a direct service is not available. The modern and organized bus station is located about 2 miles from the centre. It takes 13 minutes by bus (Bus 3 and 33, outside the Cathedral on Gran Via de Colon) to reach the city center, or reasonably cheap taxis are also available.

By train

Three trains run each day on the picturesque line to Algeciras (gateway to Morocco) via pretty Ronda. Trains also run to Córdoba, Malaga, Almeria, and Seville. More information and ticket sales at the national railways webpage.
