One week in Granada

Jump to last reply

Hi, everyone! New to this board and am requesting feedback on one week in Granada. I've always wanted to visit the Alhambra and my husband and I are finally going to do it. When we travel, we like to go to one place at a time and stay there for a week. We don't like to take a train to a different city every day or every other day. We move at a slower pace because I'm very prone to motion sickness and need more rest than the normal traveler (sorry, not a backpacker)! Here are my questions:

1. What time of year is best to go to Granada? Lower cost, less or no precipitation, and no hotter than 80 degrees. Summers are out because of the extreme heat and so are regular school semesters because my husband teaches.

2. Is there enough to do in Granada for a week? Or could I enjoy the Alhambra fully in a week? I don't mind spending extra time in one place or going back to a place--I've frequently done this. I haven't researched the Alhambra passes or tickets so I'm not sure if it's a one-day only thing or if you can buy a week-long pass.

3. Has anyone spent Christmas or the winter holidays in Granada? Thoughts? We'd love to attend Christmas Mass in Spain.

Thanks for any input! StarryEyedGal
