You can fly into and out of the same airport or, with Iberia or British Airways, fly into one and out of another which gives you plenty of time to check out the whole area.

Car hire is available from all airports and is highly recommended.

Getting Around
Car hire offers convenience and freedom for journeys between cities and once in a city the best way to explore is on foot.

In Granada relax in one of the Arab tea houses in the Albaicin area, visit the Cathedral, the pretty squares or many shops.

In Ronda admire the original Moorish mosaics of the Palacio Mondragon and visit the bullring's museum.

In Jerez de la Frontera most of the famous bodegas welcome visitors for tours followed by tasting and the opportunity to buy some souvenirs.

To Relax
Soak up Barcelona's cafe culture along the chic Paseo de Gracia before sampling the local cava with a selection of tapas. Dine in the popular Maremagnum area. The port Aventura theme park is also easy to visit by rail from the city.
