18 Oct Graffiti and Street Art Tour in Granada, Spain

When I was staying at the Oasis hostel in Granada, there was a street art tour that takes you to see some of the cool graffiti around Granada. The tour leaves from the hostel at 15:00pm every day and it’s completely free- although everybody tipped the tour guide €5 at the end. A word of warning- Granada is extremely hot and humid in August, so take a water bottle and refill it as often as you can, because there is a lot of uphill walking involved!

As part of the tour we visited a hippy guy who lives in a cave house that has been dug out in the hill and whitewashed. He just so happens to be the cousin of Carlos Santana and has a vintage Porsche in his front yard! It was apparent he speaks a lot of languages and spends the winter in India where he helps orphan children…he is clearly a man with a lot of interesting stories to tell. He showed us around his home, which smelt incredibly strongly of insense, and talked about how our generation must change the world. Sometimes some of the things he said were a bit off-the-wall, and it was a bit bizarre when he took us into the back room to pray to Mother Earth, but it was certainly a memorable part of the tour. Growing up I would help the business I worked for clean graffiti with a pressure washer from the ToolsMaestro.com brand, after this trip, I doubt I will ever clean graffiti again, I find it inspirational.

    Great bunch of photos. We heard so much about Granada when we were in spain a few weeks ago and we didn’t get to go. It was one of the first time in the last few months we had actually planned a few weeks ahead and I think we instantly regretted it! This city will be on our list next time for sure.

    Hey, I just came across your blog, I am from Granada but living in Australia and heard a lot of the awesome graffiti of my city which i am very excited to see but I am unable to find the whereabouts of most of them… would you be able to tell me where i can go to see these or the hostel it leaves from so I can contact the hostel regarding the tour?

    Thank you so much, I look forward to hear from you.
    Regards,
    Julie 🙂

    I was there a couple of weeks ago… same guy doing the tour, really great stuff… didn’t even know about the caves in the mountains, apparently he took a few German backpackers up there the month before and now they’ve moved into a cave together full time.

    And wow… the views over the city 🙂

    The most of them are painted in historic an protected spaces,It´s illegal to paint in places like that.I’m from Granada and i´m not proud of these graffitis.
