You might wish to join in one of our programmed public outings, such as the Almond Blossom Walks. Or, you and your group can choose a private excursion for yourselves, using ideas from our list of things to do. This includes, to give a few examples, caving, visiting a local pottery, a pilgrimage to a mountaintop shrine, and touring the Alhambra. If you need assistance with directions or booking transport, we are always here to help.

Finally, a Casona Granado excursion could be something you arrange yourself as the main purpose of your visit, using Casona Granado as your base.  You might come as a cycling club to do some touring for example, or with a group of geologists to study the area. We have room for eighteen people in the casona, and we can arrange further accommodation as needed at one of our sister sites or with cooperating local hotels.
