How to get from Granada to Monachil Waterfalls
Journey added: 09/05/2013
Travelling by: Bus
Journey time: 20 minutes
Journey cost: 1.65 euros
Getting to the bus stop
Make your way out of the center of Granada passing Plaza Humilladero and crossing the bridge on it’s left side over the river. Turn left onto Paseo de los Basilios and you should see two bus stops just up the road on the right. Wait at the first bus stop for the bus destined for “Cajar – Monachil” – it’s number 183.
Important to know
On Sunday, buses don’t go directly into Monachil. I’m not sure if it’s the same bus you have to take, but I know the bus drops you a mile outside of Monachil so you have to walk.

Getting to the Monachil waterfalls
The bus will drop you off on a bridge in the center of Monachil. This will be the same stop you will need to wait at to catch the bus back into Granada. Follow the river upstream on it’s left side. If you come across the following signs you will know you´re going the right way
Continue up the road and around the hairpin where you will see a stop sign. Just before the stop sign, there is a steep, grey pathway which ascends up past some residences. If you follow this, you will eventually come to a pinkish cafe with a car park. There is a small dirt path to the right of the car park that leads to the bridges, gorge etc.
If there are any mistakes, or anything you would like to add, please leave a comment. Apart from that, explore, have fun, and let me know how you get on.
