Granada is a city in Andalusia, capital of the province that has the same name. It is located in the Vega de Granada region and has about 240,000 inhabitants not counting its metropolitan area. There are many neighbourhoods in this city, many of them characterized by the important influence of immigration that took place in Granada until the 90s. Among the most important neighbourhoods of the municipality include Zaidín, Albaicín, Sacromonte, La Chana, Realejo or Cartuja, among others.
Parking in Granada is an extremely complicated task. Being a city marked by historical monuments and points of tourist interest, many of the streets of its old town are cut off from traffic or are pedestrianized. In addition, almost the entire city centre has restricted private traffic. In streets such as Gran Vía, Plaza Nueva, Elvira, El Sacromonte, Recogidas or San Matías, the movement of vehicles is not allowed, except for buses, taxis or other authorized vehicles.
Obviously, those tourists who are going to stay in hotels that are inside this restricted traffic area of Granada will be able to circulate exceptionally in this area. Although it is very important that the hotel is properly informed and the license plate of the vehicle is left with them, in order to avoid sanctions. All this area is monitored with traffic cameras that are responsible for listing the license plates and punishing those cars that are not allowed access.
In the rest of the central area where private vehicles can drive without restrictions, finding free parking is really complicated. In addition, it should be noted that in this city there is also the blue regulated parking area. In these areas you can park for a maximum of five hours and pay the corresponding fee.
