Cruise tο Motril - Granada !

In just 40 minutes, we will go from 0mtr above sea level in Motril to 800mtr in Granada, using the ancient Arab trail that is now a modern highway. In our journey we will be able to see cliffs and natural passes between water and mountains. We will have a panoramic view of Sierra Nevada and at its slopes La Alpujarra on one side and Lecrin Valley on the other, all emblematic places with typical Andalusian charm.

Granada, one of the cities with the richest history and culture in the world, offers many interesting places to visit, among which we cannot forget the Alhambra Palace, Spain’s most visited attraction.

Motril enjoys a microclimate that allows the growth of tropical fruits; in fact, average temperature is above 20˚c more than 300 days per year!

The history of sugar cane is connected with the city of Motril, not just because sugar production has been really important in the past (it was called the sweet gold), but also because the Arabs brought sugar from the Far East, and helped its cultivation first towards the Canary Islands and the Americas.

Given its proximity to so many inviting places and the rich gastronomy of the area, the range of options at a relatively short distance is immense … admire the landscape of the Alpujarras, with picturesque villages such as Lanjarσn, Orgiva, Pampaneira, Bubiσn or Trevιlez, all of extreme beauty and with great gastronomical tradition. Even closer by are the coastal villages of Salobreρa and Almuρecar... a notable number of cellars with modern wines that are being internationally awarded... or you can also enjoy wonderful beaches, many of which are still undeveloped...

Must see tourist attractions
• Alhambra Palace and Garden
