Hotels in Granada

Apart from the mandatory visit to the Alhambra, the Generalife Gardens and the beautiful Muslim neighbourhood of Albaicín, this Spanish destination has a special flavour and a history behind it that will take your breath away. Get around town and discover this wonderful destination on foot from our hotels in Granada.

Did you know that Alhambra means ‘red fortress’ or ‘red castle’’? One of the explanations for the reddish tinge of its walls is the red origin of the type of iron-containing clay it was made from. Another story has it that it's due to the torches throwing the light of their reddish blaze onto the walls of the fortress when it was being built at night.

The Romanesque and Muslim legacy will let you learn many of the city’s curiosities, which we recommend you discover on foot, one of the best ways of visiting the centre of Granada.

On a weekend in Granada you can visit the most famous parts of this lovely Spanish city, staying overnight at a hotel in the Catalonia Hotels & Resorts group.

The Royal Chapel, for example, is a beautiful spot next to Granada Cathedral and is the burial place of the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, who were actively involved in the discovery of America. The Cathedral, built in the 16th century, is also one of the chief works of the Spanish Renaissance which you can't afford not to visit.

In the afternoon, take a brief break from history and wander the Albaicín neighbourhood, formed of the streets which during the Byzantine Empire served to pay taxes on the sale of goods. This area was the main centre of the silk trade during the Nasrid period, the last Muslim dynasty to reign in Granada.

For an entertaining evening, visit one of the caves of Sacromonte, where you can attend a zambra, a flamenco show in the caves.

If you're thinking about a romantic weekend in Granada, surprise your partner during your time here with a beautiful sunset and a typical local beer. There are so many places to enjoy the sunset, such as the San Miguel Alto lookout or, if you prefer, the pool on the terrace of your Catalonia Hotels & Resorts hotel, accompanied by a delicious cocktail.

We're looking forward to seeing you!
