The Costa Tropical region
The Costa Tropical Granada is on the southern coast of Spain at the eastern end of the Costa del Sol. It takes it's name from the sub-tropical climate that prevails in this area. Inland is the Sierra Nevada and its foothills which are called Las Alpujarras The region of mountain villages known as Las Alpujarras clings to the southern flanks of the Sierra Nevada, cloven by deep, sheltered valleys and gorges which run down towards the Mediterranean. The Alpujarra, as it is popularly known, in the singular, is famous throughout Spain because of its unique mini-ecology. Its terraced farmlands are constantly watered by the melting snow from above, constituting a high-altitude oasis of greenery which stands in dramatic contrast to the arid foothills below, this is ideal hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing terrain for adventurous travellers, the average altitude is 4,000 feet above sea level.There are three main coastal resorts - Almunecar, Salobrena and Motril. There are also a number of small coastal villages which are pleasant to visit. The city of Granada is well worth a visit, with its magnificent Cathedral (built on the site of a Mosque). It has many beautiful shops and rambling alleys and wonderful Tapas Bars. One attraction not to be missed is to take the bus up to St. Nicholas Square, gazing in amazement as the driver threads his way through narrow streets and alleys avoiding pedestrians, children and animals. The view across the narrow valley to the Alhambra is breathtaking especially at night. Then find your way back down on foot through a maze of small alleys to emerge back where you started. Possibly the most principle attraction in the city of Granada is the ancient moorish palace of the Alhambra, with it's magnificent architecture and gardens. The 'Science Palace' is also a very interesting attraction to visit for people wanting a more 'hands on' experience.
The Velez de Benaudalla area
Velez de Benaudalla is an unspoiled gem the rest of the world is just beginning to discover. The friendly and outgoing people grow almonds, olives and vegetables in a privileged location just 20 minutes from the beaches in Salobrena, less than 50 minutes to the centre of Granada and I hour from world class skiing area in the Sierra Nevada mountains. One of the places of interest in the village is recently restored Nazarin Garden which represent the "5 senses of nature" which dates back 500 years. There is a small local Market on Monday mornings Velez de Benaudella has a micro climate that makes it warmer in the winter and slightly cooler in the summer than other towns elsewhere along the coast, and has long been a sought after location with history going back to Phoenician times. A highlight of the rich history in Velez was the 3 year battle between Moors and Christians from 1568 - 70. It is celebrated each year in the annual festival of San Antonio, the weekend closest to June 13th, where there is plenty of local wine colourful costumes and good cheer to all. 2003 saw the completion of an enormous dam just 2 km north of Velez, the "Presa de Rules". there are plans to use the reservoir for recreation purposes such as boating and fishing.
