21 Free Things to do in Andalusia, Spain

21 free things to do andalusia spain

The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Andalusia is one of the best (if not 'the' best) place to see wildlife in Spain. The most common creature you'll see here is the sturdy-footed ibex, a wild mountain goat that normally roams with others in small herds.

However, Andalusia has many other free attractions to offer other than an amazing display of nature, such as a stunning display of street art in Granada, a forgotten palace on the edge of the Rio Darro that's very easy to enter (though of course we didn't do that because that would be naughty...), and so many gorgeously designed buildings of old, like the famous Alhambra.

Here is a girl, sitting on the tree of life that's home to all of these eyes and a bird painted a calming blue. Here is a girl who is sharing her misery in hopes of having it changed into an uplifting spirit. But no such comfort comes, not from the trees nor the eyes nor the laughing bird.

The Parque Natural Sierras Tejeda Almijara y Alhama, located only an hour south of Granada, is home to some of the most breathtaking canyon hikes in Spain, with our personal favourite being the trail along the Rio Verde. The Spanish name translates to Green River, a name that can easily be understood as soon as you lay eyes on the stunning green and blue hues of its numerous wild swimming holes. However, despite how paradisial and welcoming the Rio Verde hike looks, we would highly recommend that you get back to your car before dark. For on our visit here...
