How to go about getting from the Airport to Granada
When approaching the Granada airport by air, pay special attention to all that is going to unfold before your eyes. Being as the weather is usually optimum, the vision from above of this enchanting city is breath taking. What would most stick out to the south of the city would be the beautiful mountain range of the Sierra Nevada. If it is winter time when you are travelling, then there are a lot of possibilities that this mountain range be covered with snow. Then, if the flight enters the airport from east to west and you fly over the city, the Alhambra Palace near the Darro River is a postcard photo favourite. If your flights to Granada come in from the south, right on the south side of this mountain range, Las Alpujarras region is a sight of over 60 different types of flora and you can imagine how colourful it would be in the autumn.
