What do I need to know about living in Granada?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Granada, they said:

"Before retiring in Granada, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs. They should also research the cost of living in the area, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Additionally, expats should consider the climate and weather in Granada, as well as the language barrier, as Spanish is the official language. Finally, expats should look into the visa and residency requirements for living in Spain," wrote a member in Granada.
