Links to Sites About Granada


This section has just been started, and many links also come from Exploreseville.com. I'm not trying to offer duplicate content everywhere, but many links are useful for traveling to almost anywhere in Spain. I You'll find many links, many of which I have happily "borrowed" from newsletters, sites and friends. I have also (with great pleasure) chosen not to use many links from these sites, friends and newsletters. Others I have come across surfing the net while doing research for this page. Many pages have a hard time keeping up to date, and thus I ask you to please email me about any links or information which are now outdated. For each link I try to give a short description of what they offer or simply my opinion. As I don't claim to cover everything on my page and many sites have done a better job on the mainstream Granada stuff. I hope you can find what you are looking for on the pages below. Please note that many of these are sites in English, except for a few Spanish pages in the cases where they are useful or simply don't offer other language versions. This is not a link farm and I don't add just anyone to this list. These are all what I feel should be useful or relevant. If you want me to add a link to a useful page please email me. All generic submissions indicating your site's page rank in Google, and how a link partnership between my site and your site about dog grooming can benefit us both will not be considered! (No offense to you dog groomers out there).
