    Visiting Granada in the Van in a couple of days time.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    There is an Aire right by the entrance, which you will find on Campercontact Make sure you book your Alhambra tickets in advance as daily visitor numbers are limited.
    We booked online and collected out tickets the night before at the main gates.

    Granada - in my opinion a bit of a one trick pony (ie the Alhambra, which you should book in advance if possible, although it may be less busy in March. There's a ticket place in the town centre). Beyond the quaint houses on a hill opposite the palace it's basically a modern shopping centre.

    The campsite we used was just outside the city at Camping Reina Isabel at la Zubia. A straight down the line site which did the job (assuming it's open now of course) and had regular buses with stops outside the front gate.

    If you're touring in that general area you'll find a lot more to occupy your time in Seville, but don't miss the Alhambra, and if you're into that sort of thing The Mezquita at Cordoba is also a must-see.

    We visited the Alhambra 3 weeks ago and stayed at the campsite at La Zubia .Dont bother with the buses as its 3 changes , book a taxi from reception and it will pick you up from your pitch and drop you at the palace entrance for 10 euros . Dont be fooled into thinking it wont be busy it will be , so book in advance . If its likely to rain take a brolley as most of its outside and dont be late as your ticket will be timed .
