The Alhambra is a huge 9th century fortress, and simply one of the most dramatic pieces of architecture youll see in the whole of Spain, (together with the Generalife Gardens which accompany the Palace). The city is dramatically set at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. If youre looking to get out of the confines of the city-centre by hiring a car in Granada, you can use a host of roads such as the A92 east and west and the A44 north and south. Travelling south will bring you to the renowned A7 which will stretch right around the Spanish coast when completed. You can rent a car in Granada from our branch at Center Hotel, Av. Fuente Nueva.
