Secrets of Andalusia: From Granada to Sierra Nevada
  • Granada is a beautiful Moorish city and home to one of Spain’s most visited historical landmarks, the Alhambra Palace, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

    The palace is open year round so winter is a good time to visit away from the crowds who flock here during the traditional summer sun months to cool off from the heat.

  • Nature lovers are drawn to this area where animal and plant life is so diverse due to the varied habitats. Wolves, foxes, and large predators such as royal eagles, vultures and hawks roam free in the mountains while tropical plants grow just a short distance from the alpine slopes.

  • Sierra Nevada, Europe's most southern ski resort. just 32 kilometres from the centre of Granada, hosted the World Alpine Ski Championships in 1996.

    The ski season normally lasts from the beginning of December until the beginning of May but artificial snow machines mean that the resort can open for skiing even when there is no natural snow.

    Andalusia has a very high proportion of sunny days, even in winter, and it is usual to ski with beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures.

  • And for something completely different why not try your hand – and feet – at the traditional Spanish art of Flamenco.

    Situated in the small village of La Alpujarra on the edge of the Sierra Nevada park, the La Fuente Flamenco Dance School offers week long courses for everyone from complete beginners to experienced dancers.

    Alongside the classes, students have the opportunity to learn to speak Spanish, the 'language of Flamenco', which many find helps to deepen their Flamenco knowledge and experience.

    The school can also arrange a whole host of additional activities, such as horse riding, painting and walking.
