Courtyard of the Palacio de Carlos V in La Alhambra

Granada

Visit Granada

Introduction

The Moorish extravaganza that is the Alhambra dominates the skyline of Granada. Sprawling along a hilltop overlooking the city, this fortress and palace is a constant presence, visible from many of Granada's streets and squares, enticing travellers to wind their way up the slopes and enter its walls.

A stay in Granada would be incomplete without at least a few hours at this World Heritage Site. Or even a couple of days, there's so much to marvel at. The Palacios Nazaries - the palaces built by the Nasrid dynasty - are stunning, airy and elegant, all arches and arabesques. The glorious gardens with their playing fountains add to the romance, and the grand Renaissance palace of Charles V provides a dramatic contrast.

And if all that wasn't enough, the views from the Alhambra are pretty impressive too, all of Granada laid out below, and in the distance, the snowy ridges of the Sierra Nevada. The Alhambra is reason enough to visit Granada, but there's much more to this Andalucian city. The Albayzin, the old Muslim quarter is an atmospheric place to wander about in, with cobblestone streets, wonderful carmines - mansions with traditional walled gardens - and teashops to pause in.

Then there's the vast and imposing Gothic Cathedral, a riot of renaissance detail to crick necks in. Soothe away the aches afterwards at the Hammams de Al-Andalus, traditional Moorish baths set in splendid surroundings.

There are just as many options to finish the day. Find authentic flamenco in the Albayzin, or join the locals having fun at one of the many restaurants or bars - Granada is one city where some bars still stick to the old tradition of free tapas with your drinks.
