Granada

Castles · Historic Walking Areas · Gardens
Pearl of Spain
Granada boasts numerous well-preserved examples of exquisite Moorish architecture, not the least of which is the Alhambra, an ancient citadel and royal palace. Though its historical buildings attract the most tourism, Granada is much more than just an ancient city center. Home to one of the country’s biggest universities, Granada has a population of about 80,000 students, spread over five sprawling city campuses. Its outlying districts are known for their youthful energy, innovative bars, and hip flamenco clubs. Also offering exciting skiing and hiking opportunities in the nearby Sierra Nevada, there’s no shortage of things to do. This hill city is a welcome break from the rest of Andalucía’s summer heat. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Granada and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
