Granada has been the crucible of cultures and civilizations, where, during the centuries, christians, muslims and jews lived altogether. Nowadays, Granada is a modern city that has an uncommon scientific and cultural background, along with the University and the institutes of CSIC (High Council of Scientific Investigations) and an architectural, natural and historic patrimony like no other. Likewise, it owns a grown and active corporte environment made up of companies based on knowledge, standing out those related to the health campus and new technologies. To all these values, we should add an extensive cultural activity and the well-known hospitality of the people from Andalucia which brings a warm welcome to their guests.
Granada welcomes every year more than 2,5 millions of tourists both nationally and internationally driven here for the excellent turistic offers, the location and the weather, with the Alhambra as the most emblematic monument, being the most visited monument in all Spain.
The airport is located 10-15 minutes away from the city centre. It has direct connections with Madrid, Barcelona, Mallorca, London and Milan.
