Traveling to Granada

Travel to Spain and COVID-19

You can travel to Granada by car, bus, train or plane. Granada has a local airport (Granada-Jaén, GRX), though a budget option is to travel to Malaga airport (AGP). From there you can take a bus (ALSA) for about 15 € per person to Granada (central bus station), which takes about 2.5 hours. Alternatively you can rent a car in Malaga if you intend to make additional trips on your own in or around Granada (e.g. into the Sierra Nevada or to the coast). The major car rental companies are also located in Granada (central train station). Be aware that parking in Granada is not easy.

In Granada

Granada has a good and economic public transport system. The Metro crosses the whole city. Taxis are not expensive.
