Rent a car in Granada/Jaén and discover the charm of the ancient Nasrid Kingdom and the beauty of Jaén. The two cities represent the best of Andalusia: the beautiful historic and artistic heritage, good food and good olive oil.
It may be Granada that houses one of the best known artistic treasures in the world: the Alhambra, a monument evocative of Nasrid splendour and sumptuousness. But in Jaén you will also find outstanding beauty: its Cathedral, for example, is one of the prettiest Baroque cathedrals in Spain.
Both cities also have delicious cuisine and products. Little can be added to the quality of the oil produced in Jaén. Its natural surrounding areas, fully covered in olive trees, is a good example of the deep-seated olive oil tradition in this region.
Furthermore, both Granada and Jaén have surrounding areas well-worth discovering. The Alpujarra is particularly recommendable. This is an area where you can enjoy small and charming Andalusian villages, especially Nerja, a spectacular town just 2 hours from Granada by car.
