What to do in Granada / 2 night trip to Granada for our anniversary.
« Last post by Susan and Peter on February 20, 2017, 10:57:54 AM »
My wife and I are staying in Nerja on the coast during the winter. It is our aniversary on the 7th of  March and we would like to visit Granada for 2 nights.

I am not sure if we should take the bus or the car.

My wife likes seafood and we would like to go to a restaurant which does good paella. We are both fairly fit and we like walking. Are there any good walks around the city?

I have been told that it is complicated to book tickets to the Alhambra do you have any advice. Is a guided tour a good idea?

Where is the best place to stay? I have been told it is good to be near Plaza Nueva. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. 
What to do in Granada / Re: Mirador de San Nicolas

A mirador is a view point with a panoramic view.

Mirar in Spanish means "to look".
So a mirador is a "looker" or a place where you look from.

The Mirador de San Nicolas has a wonderful panorama of the Alhambra.
It is in the Albaicin and is across a valley from the Alhambra.
It is free, it is just a public square.

I have been told to visit Mirador de San Nicolas.

What is it?
How do I get there?
How much does it cost?
Here is a list of estate agents in Granada.
By the way:  A friend of mine is selling a house.
Here is a link.

The most important thing to remember about estate agents is to not greatly trust whatever  they say.
They just want to get a sale and they will never be held responsible for anything they say.

Accommodation / Estate Agents in Granada - Advice on buying a house in Granada.
« Last post by hudson on January 27, 2017, 07:19:30 AM »
Last October I spent a month studying Spanish  in Granada and I really liked it.
I have recently come into some money from an inheritance.

I have lived all my life in the UK but I hate the weather.

The idea of Brexit frightens me and I believe that the UK is heading to a bad place.
There does not seem much of a problem right now but within 10 years I can see the UK
becoming  very unhappy and conflictive.

It has crossed my mind that now would be a good time to jump ship.
I have thought about living and retiring in cheap countries such as Ecuador or
Panama but the lack of a decent health service would be a problem if I fall ill.
Plus they are very far away from the UK where I have many friends.

If I moved to Spain and became a resident would I be able to get a Spanish passport and become Spanish
if I pay all my taxes.

The first thing I want to do is to buy a house in Granada.
Does anyone have any advice on this?
Is it best to use an estate agent?
Which estate agents are the best etc.

Go to the ticketmaster site.

They identify you by the email address but also by the credit card.

Go back to ticketmaster and enter your credit card details and you will be able to see the details of your booking.

Customer service in English should be here.

If yahoo is like gmail you can make an alias email to associate with your real email.
You could make an alias so that the email sent to the wrong email will get to you.

Getting around in Granada / Re: Parking for 48 hours
« Last post by John on October 03, 2016, 11:14:40 PM »
The best place for you to park is Severa Ochoa.
48 hours would be 36 euros.
They also have a 3 day weekend pass (bono fin de semana) for 36 euros
or a weekly pass (bono semanal) for 46 euros.

There is more info here.

It is not far from Mendez Nuñez.

The only cheaper place for 48 hours is Ave Maria in Realejo.
48 hours would be 21 euros.
It would peobably only be a good idea if you are stay reasonanly close.

There is more info here.

We will stay in Granada for 2 nights, but would like to park the car in one of the parking lots close to highway (Neptuno or Mendez Nunez). I see that they have tariff up to 24 hours only. Is it still possible to leave there a car for 48 hours? Thank you!
