Granada parking


I was originally thinking to travel by bus from Priego to Granada to save the parking problem. However, my son gets travel sick and I now think I might be better to drive as I will be able to stop if necessary.This could prove a bit tricky on a bus!.

My thoughts are to drive to the outskirts of Granada or to the Bus / train station and park my car for 2 nights/ 3 days. Does anyone know if this is possible or do you know of anywhere safe I could leave my car without driving into the centre of Granada.

I did drive in Cordoba last year and I imagine that Granada is worse than that ?

Any help appreciated

Presume that the main reason for visiting Granada will be the Alhambra. If so then it may be best to drive to the main Alhambra car park as this will avoid going into the centre f the city. Th car parks are well signed as you reach the outskirts of Granada. If you want a more detailed driving instruction then you could use Google Maps. You could leave the car parked and go into the centre of Granada - it is downhill from the Alhambra either walking or bus and you can take the micro bus back up for return.

A good diea to read up about visiting in the notes >>>>>>>>>>>>>>on right

http://www.hotelalixares.com/ should tick all your boxes and you can walk downhill to La Plaza Nueva for tapas, drinks, shopping ambience they either get frequent bus or taxi back up hill again. I stayed here once and would stay here again for the location which was spot on. Good luck.

The simplest to get to and the cheapest place to park is Severa Ochoa.


They have the cheapest rates if you are over 2 days

and they give you a card with a magnetic strip so you can come and go without paying more.

If you park there you can choose to stay anywhere in the centre.

If you really don't want to pay you could leave your car in the streets around the bus station and then get a 3 or a 33 into the centre.

Don't leave anything visible in the car which could motivate someone to break the windows.

For a list of all car parks in Granada here is a link


Personally I would experiment with anti car sickness medication because in my opinion you get more involved with the country you are visiting if you use public transport but that is just my personal point of view.
