famed for its exquisite palace-fortress, the Alhambra
, but there is so much more to this Spanish city than the world's biggest surviving medieval Islamic palace. The last redoubt of Moorish culture in Spain offers an architectural cocktail
blending ancient with modern, traditional with creative and Christian with Islamic.
Combine all this with Granada's mix of narrow, secretive streets and expansive, open vistas
and you'll discover it weaves a unique magic
that makes it quite unlike any other city in Spain.
The 16th Century Cathedral
is another masterful piece of architecture and is definitely worth a visit. Other popular attractions include the Royal Chapel of Granada and the Gates of Fajalauza
in the ancient city walls.
As well as a city steeped in ancient history and culture
, Granada is well known for its fun and vibrant nightlife.
Popular and trendy bars, clubs and cafes' along with the more serene and peaceful side of the city ensure that Granada has something for everyone.Distances from your hotel
