How to get from Almuñécar to Granada

By Car:

It is about an hour drive by car from Almuñécar To Granada.  Please allow ample time to find parking and walk to your destination within the city.

Public Parking Garages in Granada

There are also several public parking garages available.  Most have hourly rates, but also offer daily or weekly rates as well.  It is work checking around.  Sometimes it is best to just park your car and use the public transport available during your time in the city.

Tip 1:  If you park in any of these underground car parks, take note of where you are, and what landmarks there are as you exit.  It’s easy to forget where you have left your car.  We often take out the cell phone and snap a photo of the garage entrance, as well as nearby street signs or shops.

Tip 2:  We recommend using Parkopedia to help you find a garage near your destination within Madrid.  It will tell you all of the information you need to know about the garage space, location, as well as prices and types of vehicles allowed.  It is really a great tool to use when driving in Spain.
