Granada is a great spot for sports and activities. The first thing that comes to most peoples minds when they think of sports in Spain is soccer, or football. Soccer is one of the most popular sports in Europe, and Spain is no exception. During the season, fans go out for every game and eagerly support their favorite team. While Granada does not have its own large club, there are other large clubs in Seville, Barcelona, and Madrid. Still, there are local teams and leagues that are organized that many in the community come out to watch and support. There are also opportunities to play golf in and around the city. This sport isn't extremely popular in the area, but you can still find some places to play. If you want, you can go for a horse ride just outside of the city. Because Granada is located an hour from the mountains and an hour from the beach, you can do this in either location. Surprisingly, polo is a pretty popular sport in Spain, and though it is often thought of as an elitist sport, there are many locals who enjoy watching a match. If you want to get out into the countryside for a day or so you can go camping. This is best in the mountains, but you do not have to be up there to do so.
