A complete guide to Granada


If you visit only one town in Spain, it should be Granada. For here, extraordinarily well-preserved and in a spectacular natural setting, stands La Alhambra – the most exciting, sensual and romantic of all European monuments. Both La Alhambra and El Generalife were declared UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1984.

But that’s not it, because ten years later, the hill-top Albaicín, the former Moorish town, was also declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. This fascinating quarter is full of narrow alleyways and small squares, and a great place to get lost. You too, just like sultans some 800 years ago, will be smitten with this Andalusian city.
