The province of Granada offers enormous contrasts in climate, owing to its startlingly different geographical features. It has two special microclimates:

  • Costa Tropical: has an average temperature of 18.5º C and 3000 hours of sunlight per year.
  • Sierra Nevada: temperatures can range from 35ºC in the hot days of summer, to below freezing in winter.
