Things to do

Religious tourism

turismo-religioso

Granada offers many religious tourism options. You can go on a pilgrimage to Huéscar and earn a Jubilee Indulgence, experience the intensity of Semana Santa Viviente en Cuevas del Campo (Holy Week celebration), visit the site of the first Diocese in Spain in Guadix, and participate in the numerous pilgrimages that take place all over the province. You can do all this as well as see some of the most important historical sites in Spain.

The crypt of Beato Fray Leopoldo de Alpandeire and the legacy of San Pedro Poveda in the Barrio de las Cuevas in Guadix, are pilgrimage destinations that attract thousands of worshippers from all around every year.

The city of Granada is in itself a symbol of the coexistence of three cultures and religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
