As one would expect from the homeland of the great poet Federico
Garcia Lorca and the adopted city of figures such as the North
American writer Washington Irving, Granada offers outstanding
cultural opportunities. The city hosts festivals devoted to
flamenco, jazz, tango, magic, music, dance, comics, cinema
and poetry, as well as art exhibitions, etc.
Since its opening in 1995, the "Granadinos" have
also been able to visit the Parque de las Ciencias, one of
the most important interactive science museums of its kind
in Europe. It offers a wide range of first class permanent
and temporary exhibitions and attractions.
There are countless opportunities for amateur sports lovers:
different public sports complexes can be found spotted around
the city with indoor swimming pools, athletics tracks, tennis
and basketball courts, etc.
The mountainous terrain of the province of Granada make it
ideal for mountain biking, road bicycle racing, climbing,
canyoning, trekking, skiing, etc.
