4. From Granada: Guadix and Tabernas Desert Full-Day Tour
After collection from your accommodation or a convenient meeting point in the city center, drive off into the surrounding landscape and appreciate the natural beauty north of Granada, near the foothills of Sierra Nevada mountains.
Stop at Guadix, which is known for its Troglodyte past and its cave houses, many of which are still occupied by locals. Walk through the main streets of the city center in a small group and marvel at the imposing Cathedral of the Incarnation built in a Gothic and Baroque style over the site of a former mosque.
Visit the cave district and Tropolis, a museum located in an original cave. Learn about cave dwellings past and present, and the traditions and craft professions that are linked to them.
Enjoy the scenery and capture shots of the photogenic Calahorra Castle, situated on a hill above the town of the same name. It is one of the first Italian Renaissance castles outside Italy built on the site of a former fortification.
Finally, explore the Tabernas Desert on your own. See the landscape of arid slopes and the location chosen by Hollywood directors who created the Spaghetti Western. Find out where they filmed Lawrence of Arabia, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars, and many more.
Enjoy an exquisite local lunch. After your meal, relax with an hour of free time to have a coffee or a stroll before returning to Granada.
