Zaragoza and Granada, two destinations for mountain lovers

The combination “summer” and “mountain destination” is perfect for those who want to live a different vacation far away from the bustling cities and with services that have nothing to do with sun bathes and with the saltpetre of the sea.

Although the Pyrenees or the Asturian mountains are two important attractions for those who want to live their holidays in the mountain, destinations like Granada or Zaragoza allow for the combination of rest, nature, gastronomy and culture. Two essential destinations of our geography perfect for a complete holiday.

A summer in Granada

The fact that locals do not want to leave the city in summer is prove that Granada is a fabulous summer destination. Located near coastal areas like Motril or Almeria’s beaches, Granada offers the traveller a rhythmic, colourful and tasteful summer. If you choose the capital of the Alhambra for a summer vacation, you will be able to enjoy delicious tapas, craft beer and cool promenades around Albayzin.

Sierra Nevada during summer

Granada offers options for all tastes and at a good quality price ratio: from excursions to Sierra Nevada and Pico del Veleta (the fourth highest peak of our country) to walks along the narrow streets of Alcaiceria.

Do you have doubts regarding the accommodation? For those who want a safe bet and who want a top vacation in Granada, the best option is a Vinci Hotel like the

Vincci Albayzin Hotel: Located in the historic centre of the city, the Vincci Albayzin Hotel offers the services proper of the hotel chain and a charming ambiance provided by a typical Andalusian building of Arabian inspiration. This accommodation offers exclusive services like sauna, gym or a luxury restaurant where to try some of the most delicious local dishes.

Vincci Rumaykiyya Hotel: For those who want to visit Sierra Nevada no matter what, the Vincci Rumaykiyya Hotel  is their best option. This five-star hotel with stunning views and an exclusive wide range of services is considered one of the most beautiful hotels in Europe (apart from being one of the highest ones).

Zaragoza, looking for the magic of Aragon

Although it is the fifth most populated city in Spain, Zaragoza displays a special calm and an innate quietness. The capital of Aragon, considered one of the most important cultural destinations of our country, is the perfect place for an inland summer vacation with views of the mountain and of its three rivers.

In this fantastic city you will be able to visit the beautiful Monasterio de Piedra natural park, practice rafting in the Ebro or climb in some of the nearby mountains. Zaragoza is the perfect place for resting, for reconnecting with nature and for all those activities we cannot do on a daily basis.
If you want to enjoy a perfect experience in Zaragoza, we recommend you to make a reservation at the Vincci Zaragoza Zentro Hotel, a hotel located within a five minutes’ walk to the city centre, with private indoor parking (something important considering it is located in the city centre) and with bikes for clients.
