What to see in Granada in 2 days
What to see in Granada on the first day
The best thing you can do on your first day in Granada is to visit the Alhambra, the most famous monument in the city and the best thing to see in Granada in two days. Without a doubt, an essential visit.
Inside we can visit the Palace of Carlos V, the Alcazaba or the Generalife Gardens. But the main point of interest in the complex are the Nasrid Palaces.
In the Nasrid Palaces we will find places as impressive as the Comares Palace or the Patio de los Leones, the main attraction of Granada.
You have to remember that the entrance to the Nasrid Palaces must be done at a specific one that they indicate when you buy the tickets, so it is best to organize your visit according to this schedule. You will possibly spend the whole morning, or even more, visiting this spectacular monument, the main one to visit in Granada in two days.
From there you have great views of the Albaycín, the most historic neighborhood in Granada, where we will go after visiting the Alhambra.
Getting lost in the labyrinthine streets of the Albaycín is the main option on the afternoon of our first day in Granada, reaching the Mirador de San Nicolás, where we can have the best views of the Alhambra, especially at sunset and then observe it illuminated.
The day can end by walking along the Carrera del Darro and enjoying the atmosphere that you will find in the Plaza Nueva, the main square in the city of Granada.
What to visit in Granada on the second day
We are going to dedicate our last of the two days in Granada to visiting the center of the city, which is considered the Christian part.
There we have the Cathedral of Granada, its main point of interest, and a great masterpiece, built by the Catholic Monarchs, whose tomb is in the building that we can find right next to it, the Royal Chapel, also an essential visit in the city.
After visiting both monuments, we recommend you walk to the nearby Corral del Carbón, an old corn exchange that is very well preserved and has the honor of being the oldest monument in the city. Another of the essential monuments to see in Granada in two days.
We will return in this way to the surroundings of the Plaza Nueva to walk again through the Albaycín and reach El Bañuelo, another very interesting place that we can find in the Carrera del Darro.
We also recommend continuing to another of Granada ‘s most interesting neighborhoods, Sacromonte, which you must visit if you like flamenco.
