Buses to Granada

Granada's exotic architecture and tranquil gardens always attract crowds, and buses are a great way to see what all the fuss is about. Direct Alsa bus services run into the centre of the Andalucian city from Malaga and Seville, while indirect journeys are also available from Alicante. So visitors from the UK can easily take in the wonders of the Alhambra whenever they desire.

Which is the main bus station in Granada?

Most buses to Granada will arrive at the city's Estacion de Autobuses. Situated in the northern part of the city, the bus station is within walking distance of the old town and the Alhambra Palace, but it can be hard work in hot weather. In that case, taking the SN1 or SN2 buses is a great option. Both run from the historic centre.

Which bus companies offer buses to Granada?

Buses to Granada are exclusively operated by Alsa, the Spanish national bus carrier. Alsa offers a blend of standard fares and "Supra" services, which add extra leg room and on-board perks - for a slight price increase.

Why travel by bus to Granada?

Taking buses to Granada makes a lot of sense for travellers. For one thing, buses are an extremely affordable, comfortable way to get around southern Spain. Alsa is a reliable operator, and it offers a dense network of routes. So, if visitors are staying in Cordoba, Malaga, or Elche, there should be transportation options. Buses tend to undercut trains in terms of price, and aren't much slower. They are also handy for visitors arriving by air. Granada's own airport is served by UK airlines, but convenient flights aren't always available. Bus connections offer a solution while allowing passengers to enjoy the scenic views.

Before you travel to Granada by bus - good to know!

When arriving by bus, it's best to remember that the bus station is a short distance north of the old town, which is home to Granada's major attractions. The city is divided into modern and historic sections, so getting to grips with local buses can help to get around. When seeing the sights, Alhambra tours are a must, and it's a good idea to spend some time in the Generalife gardens as well. But the Albaicin (old town) is also a must-visit, with its peaceful Moorish courtyards, while the colourful streets of Sacromonte are also a delight to wander around.
