BY BUS:

Granada is well-connected by bus to other Spanish cities.  Alsa.es  operates buses from Madrid, Malaga (city and airport), Cordoba, Seville etc. Tickets can be purchased online.

The Estación de Autobuses (central bus station) is at Carretera de Jaén, about 4 km from the center of town.

To reach the Alhambra from the bus station, take buses *TO BE ADVISED* to the Catedral de Granada and from here walk in the direction the bus was taking to the statue ahead and in that Plaza (Isabel la Catolica) take bus C3 or C4 to the Alhambra. Alternatively, take a taxi for about €10 from the bus station.

A more scenic and traditional approach to the Alhambra is to walk from Plaza Nueva to the Cuesta de Gomerez (Gate of Pomegranates) and onto the Puerta de la Justicia (Gate of Justice).

 BY TRAIN:

Granada is not served by high-speed trains. From Madrid, the journey takes about 5 1/2 hours. From Seville, it is about 4 hours.

The Estación de Renfe train station is 2 km from the center of Granada on Avenida de Los Andaluces near Avenida de la Constitución.

To reach the Alhambra directly from the train station, walk down Avenida de la Constitución, just past the Jardines de Triunfo, and take bus *TO BE ADVISED* to the Catedral de Granada and from here walk in the direction the bus was taking to the statue ahead and in that Plaza (Isabel la Catolica) take bus C3 or C4 to the Alhambra. 

  *TO BE ADVISED* - A new urban bus system came into effect July 2014.
