Getting to the Alhambra

It is a steep uphill walk to the Alhambra from the Plaza Nueva. If you don't fancy this then catch a microbus from the Gran Vía (number 30 or 32) or if you are coming by car and want to avoid driving through Granada, park at the Alhambra car park which can be reached from the 'Ronda Sur', the motorway that runs along the south-side of Granada. This in turn is reached from the A-44 ring-road (circumvalación) that also links Granada with Motril to the south and Jaén to the north - take exit 132 and follow the pink signs for 'Alhambra' and this will take you there.

Full details can also be found on the official Alhambra website:
