There are so many quirky places to stay in Granada, and even those on a budget can find accommodation that is interesting and welcoming. Visitors who are seeking a bed and breakfast will love Casa Bombo. It is located in the heart of the Albayzin. The building was once a private residence, but now it is home to this charming accommodation that is part hostel, part B&B. Casa Bombo can accommodate groups, families or couples. Be prepared to make friends, as the common areas are comfortable and inviting, and the staff will often prepare a group meal at dinner at a small cost.
Sometimes, it is so satisfying to hit upon one of the trendiest restaurants as a visitor to a city. However, there is a bit of risk when seeking the newest craze. A visit to Alameda is not a gamble. The downstairs bar is contemporary, yet comfortable, and the upstairs restaurant delightful. Light colored wood and white furniture dominate the décor, and the ambiance is just as carefree. This is a place that is trendy and has a Michelin Star, but refrains from being pushy or pretentious.
VidaXtra is a bit confusing at first. The solid white walls are mostly bare and the well-stocked bar appears crowded in comparison. However, what this awesome venue lacks in décor it makes up for in friendly service and exceptional food. You will not be the first visitor to leave pleasantly surprised and planning a future meal at VidaXtra.
Visitors who want to party like the Spanish should plan for a night that begins long after sunset and keeps going into the early morning hours. In a university town like Granada, there is no shortage of places to stay up all night. However, to have a truly Spanish night out you want to not only stay awake with the locals, but also go where the locals go. Techno and Spanish fill Mae West most nights of the week. A DJ keeps the dance floor busy, and the entire club is full of color and energy until dawn.
When the Spanish monarchs defeated the Nazaris in 1492, Christianity became a huge part of the culture and daily life in Granada. This continues today, although many events are more than religious celebrations and often showcase the traditions, culture and passion of the local people.
Across Spain, the Holy Week before Easter is celebrated with fervor. The celebrations in Granada are unique. There are 32 processions that take place across Granada during this week, which can fall in March or April depending on the year, but instead of the fervor and excitement of most cities, Granada's celebrations are filled with beautiful simplicity. The cool and calm afternoons of March provides the perfect weather for viewing these interesting parades.
Visitors should not miss the midnight processions through the Albaycin. The week culminates with Easter and a not to be missed procession in which young children ceramic lanterns down the picturesque streets of Granada.
