A city of mystical allures, Granada is a delicate crossover between North Africa and Europe.
The well preserved ancient city sits within one of Spain’s most impressive and enviable locations– below the Sierra Nevada mountains. While Granada’s most iconic monument, the Alhambra Palace, stands as a jaw-dropping recollection of its Moorish roots, its student population triggers a more eclectic way of life.
Although the city may be firmly planted on Spain’s tourist trail, its atmospheric mix of Muslim and Spanish culture has not been left behind. Any city will have a tough time following up Granada’s legacy and landscape, but to make the most of your stay you’ll want embark on a Spanish road trip. Take a drive to the mountain villages of Las Alpujarras or to the famed cave houses of Guadix.

Things to do in Granada
With its Moorish architecture and ancient treasures, Granada is a city steeped in character and history. The Arabs, invading the peninsula in the 8th century, gave it its current name of Granada, meaning "Great Castle" after the Roman fortress that once stood on the Albaicin Hill. It was the last Muslim city to fall to the Christians in 1492, at the hands of Queen Isabel of Castile and her husband Ferdinand of Aragon. With such a dramatic, exciting background, it’s no surprise that Granada is home to one of the most stunning structural relics of the old-world. The Alhambra is a series of 14th century Palaces, gardens and assorted buildings stands at the base of the mighty Sierra Nevada mountain range. At its centre, the Palace of Charles V towers imposingly, and the rest of the compound is filled with a mixture of Christian and Moorish design in Granada's unique "mudéjar" style.
Visit the labyrinth streets of the Albaicin, the old Moorish Kasbah facing the Alhambra. The Plaza de San Nicolas, at the highest point of the Albaicin, is famous for its magnificent view of the Moorish palace. The Sacromonte hill, which looms over the city, is famous for its ancient cave dwellings.
