Exploring Malaga: 72 Hours in Granada and the Sierra Nevada

Hire a car at Malaga airport and visit a Moorish-built city ...

... you'll find it sprawled at the foot of a dramatic National Park, just an hour-and-a-half’s drive away.

Granada’s storied past rises from its narrow, winding streets. It’s etched in the columns and porticoes of its Moorish palaces and houses, and it’s painted on its patterned tiles and mosaics.

As the last Andalusian city conquered by Catholic monarchs (in 1492), the legacy of seven centuries of Arabic rule can still be seen in its eclectic architecture, and tasted in its food.

With Sierra Nevada National Park a short drive away, it all adds up to the perfect weekend break. Here’s how to spend three flawless days in Granada and beyond.
