The city of Granada, Darro River, Alhambra and Sierra Nevada Mountains provide the backdrop for this Peri-urban Park. It has recreation areas such as Llano de la Perdiz and Aljibe de Lluvia, where local residents enjoy stunning views of the area - highly recommended is the Silla del Moro Viewpoint.

As far as vegetation is concerned, Mediterranean species such as the holm oak, re-planted pine and some Portuguese oaks predominate, along with abundant aromatic scrub. Its woodland is home to a large number of animal species, especially woodland birds.

The Quejigal del Darro and Barranco de la Silla del Moro Trails, along with the Acequia del Real cycle-touring track, are perfect to enjoy this natural wealth first hand. The names of locations give an idea of the historical importance of Generalife Plain. Palace remains, wells and water channels are remnants of the area¿s important Moorish past.

The Peri-urban Park is also a popular place for leisure and sports. The Sports Circuit is a challenge for the most athletic visitors.

Options for visitors do not end here. You have the chance to explore more countryside in the Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Huétor Nature Parks, and you can also visit to the city of Granada, not to be missed.
