The heath has arrived to the Alhambra city. The small streets of the Albaizyn are full of small corners where people find shelter from the strong sun. The terraces are filled with Granadinos and visitors just enjoying a good cold beer and a tasty fresh tapa.
Summer fills every corner of Granada with culture. You can get soaked in with tons of music, dance, movies, and many summer festivals that are held all over the city.
Also, there are plenty of public pools and water parks if you are in the mood of a good cold dip in the water to forget about the intense heath. And at night, a fresh terrace with good views, a good movie in one of the many summer theaters around the city or just enjoy a nice walk.
