Does anyone know if there is any pub or bar that show the 6 Nations games in Granada?

Herve Thomas , Granada, ESP, 2 months ago

Hi Filippos,

The Irish pub Hannigans (calle Cetti Meriem, in the center) is showing the 6th Nations for sure!

Also, in calle Alhamar there is a new bar called "5 Naciones". As its name indicates (in spite of the absence of the 6th nation, aka Italy) it's a kind of sports bar, and there is an event there tonight if you want to check it out : https://www.couchsurfing.com/events/intercambio-semanal-weekly-exchange-granada-2016-02-03

Hello,
My boyfriend and I will be doing a trip of southern Spain and staying in Granada for 3-4 days in mid-June. I have done a whirlwind tour of Granada, Seville and Cordoba before, but it was really site-driven (as in, we ran from one "big site" in a tour book to the next) and we didn't really have time to take in the local culture. This time, we want to experience things more and not be so stuck on what sites we see, but more so on what we do/experience/who we meet (other than tourists at busy attractions!).

In your opinion, what are some of the best experiences to have in Granada or southern Spain? For example, if someone were visiting my city from another country, I would say the top experiences to understand the local culture would be to rent a pair of skates and play hockey, go to a beautiful farmer's market downtown, have a bonfire in the park, and go for a walk through the river valley. I'm curious as to what you would recommend for us :) Thanks!

I would say the caves of sacromonte, try to interact with the people living in them and maybe have a tea or chat with one of them hahaha that's authentic, or dance to the beat of the drums from the Africans also living in those caves :D
Go for tapas in place not located at the city center but more on the outside of the main attractions(you will be surprised by the bigger portions)
Go to a bodega and taste different wines from around Granada(mostly sweet wines)

Hey, the main attraction in Granda is the Alhambra. It is really busy and you need to book it at least with 1 month in advance. So I advise you to do that as soon as possible. Granada is also famous for its Arabic influence. Here you can find really good tea shops with Arabic food. Also visit the Arabic neighborhood of Albaycin. Going out for tapas is also a tradition here. Tapas is the food that is served in a bar with the drink you order. Paying 2 euros you can have a glass of beer or into de Verano and eat a nice portion of food. With 2 tapas, most of the people are done hehe close to Granada is also the park of Sierra Nevada in June I think you won't be able to see snow, you can find cool hikings there. Hope it helps you. Any more doubt, message me. Enjoy Granada!
