Granada is an Andalusian gem which owes a lot to its African neighbours in terms of architecture, but the food on offer is decidedly Spanish with an array of delicious tapas on offer. The awe-inspiring Alhambra is a must-see, while its surrounding Generalife Gardens are equally as impressive.
Surrounded by the sun-baked hills and the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Andalucía, the ancient city of Granada is a stunning testament to the rich and diverse history of the region. From the Spanish renaissance splendour of the Palace of Charles V, to the jaw-dropping Alhambra, the history of the city appears around every corner. This historic feel is more than matched by the modern, vibrant feel of the bars and restaurants around Puerta Real in the centre of the city.
Spend hours exploring the streets of the centre, see the spectacular decorations inside the city’s cathedral, relax in the Garcia Lorca Park –named after the local son and famous poet, and then make your way to the Andalusian jewel of Alhambra. A fortified complex with lots of different buildings and gardens, this is a true wonder of the world. Discover the beautiful gardens of Generalife, wander through the magnificence of the Palace of Charles V and then experience the Torre de la Vela, where you can gaze across the romantic city below.
