Granada's Climate

Painting in Granada in 2017

Granada's climate is friendly and dry, the air clean and healthy, with clear and cheerful skies. In May the temperature averages 24 C perfect for painting outside.

The Granada region offers Spain's richest variety of climate and landscape, from the alpine vegetation of the Sierra Nevada to the tropical coast of Motril.

Granada's Geography

Granada is situated at the foot of the Sierra Nevada between two hills, separated by the Darro Valley, which cast their views over the wide vega. The River Darro flows through the centre of the city, dividing the hills of Sacromonte and Albaycin, that of the Alhambra.

Granada's flora comprises a wonderful botanical mix, with tropical plants growing but a short distance from alpine slopes.

We will be staying in a lovely hotel in the center of the city, a few minutes walk to the centre and close to the Alhambra.
