There are an increasing amount of places for vegans.

Both the Hicurri and the Paprika have gone vegan in the past year.

Nowadays you only need 2 buses.

When you get on the first bus the ticket is timestamped.
You can then get on any other bus as long as it is not on the same line for up to 1 hour afterwards.
You only have to pay once.

You can buy a ticket and a bono on any bus in Granada except the LAC .

Get the SN1 to the cathedral
Then get on a C1 or C2 to Paseo de los Tristes.

Getting around in Granada / From the bus station to Paseo de los Tristes by bus

I want to go from the bus station to Paseo de los Tristes by bus because I am staying at the Cervantes apartment.
On the bus pages on
it says that I have to use 3 buses.

It says that the price per ticket is 80 cents per person with a bono but 1.30 with a normal ticket.

Do I have to buy 3 tickets is can I do the journey with 1 ticket?
Can I buy a bono at the bus station or on the bus?
What to do in Granada / Precautions on a night out in Granada
« Last post by Steven Wellington on July 13, 2014, 12:23:39 AM »
I have some friends visiting me at the moment.

Last night they went out "de marcha" and came back home at 9.30am.

In the early part of the evening at about 1am they went to Mae West which is a very popular disco bar in Granada.

A very well built man tried to steal my friends iphone which she was keeping in her bra.

She realised immediately and grabbed hold of his arm and then started biting him to force him to let go. (she is a very feisty German girl who had just been working on a farm) a big struggle ensued. Although the other people dancing nearby offered no assistance my 3 friends caused such a commotion that the security guards came over to investigate.

The first reaction of the mugger thief scum bag was to accuse my friend of trying to steal his phone but of course she knew the access code to the phone and could prove it was hers.

After some insistence the mugger thief scum was thrown out.

So, if you go out drinking (especially if you are foreign looking)

Preferably take out an old phone. (or buy a new one for about 14 euros) Put anything you care about in a well buttoned or zipped pocket. Leave your passport and other important documents at home. Just take out as much money as you need. Don't get so drunk that you don't know what you are doing. Don't hang up a coat with anything valuable in it. There are some scum bags out there trying to take advantage of people out having a good time. Let's make life difficult for them.

This incident didn't ruin their night and afterwards they had a great time. They came back with some fresh cakes from the bakery for out breakfast.

Here is more info about Mae West
Don't forget you can always print your tickets out at home using the reference number in the ticketmaster confirmation email.
Alternatively, you can pick them up from the following places:

    any SERVICAIXA cashpoint in Andalucía
    the white cashpoint at the ALHAMBRA SHOP on Calle Reyes Católicos in Granada
    CARREFOUR (large supermarket)
    HALCON VIAJES (travel agency)
    TICKET OFFICE on Calle Acera del Casino (in front of Teatro Isabel la Católica)

Getting around in Granada / Re: Has anyone been on the new tourist train?
« Last post by rent-a-bici on July 04, 2014, 05:24:24 AM »
when our parents where here it was great doing that (70 years..), or might be fun with children as well...
Just wondering if Ticketmaster have announced any new pick up points for pre paid online Alhambra tickets since ending the arrangement with service Caixa ATM's. Another Forum User had some ideas about possible outlets they might use but has anything been put into place do we know? I do think that they could update their information on the website a bit more often!

If I spoke spanish I would ring myself and ask but I suspect that I would not get a clear answer and probably wouldn't understand it if I did!- that's assuming I could get through on the phone. Ticketmaster's Phone Lines do not work,I am told.

As I understand it at present, the options to pick up pre paid non discounted tickets are to either pick up at the Alhambra shop in down town Granada, or at the Alhambra ticket office itself.!

Does anyone on the ground over there or anyone who has just visited know any different?

I had to try the tren turistico out of curiosity.

It is a road  train with carriages which does an  interesting route of Granada.
There are free headphones with commentary in several languages.

It is a hop on hop off service which means after paying for the ticket you can get on and off as many times as you like.

My opinion:
It is very touristy and it makes you feel like an obvious tourist.
It is a little bit expensive and it would be cheaper to get in a taxi and do the same route or just get on one of the normal minibuses.

However it is a pleasant way to spend some time in Granada and could be fun for a lot of people.
