What to see in Granada

What to see and do in Granada



La Alhambra. With no doubt Granada and Spain’s main attraction. The ancient Moorish city fortress is home to fairytale palaces, gardens, courtyards, fountains, and streets.
The first palace was built in the 11th century but it was only during the Nasrid period in the 13th and 14th centuries that the Alhambra gained its magnificent aspect, with the site turned into a small fortified city within Granada. You can easily spend all day exploring its secrets, and is more than advisable to purchase the entry ticket beforehand, because the queue at the ticket box can be very long.

La Capilla Real. The Royal Chapel is the site in which are buried the Catholic Kings, Ferndinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile, who completed the reconquest of Al Andalus, the arabic name of Andalucia, with the capture of Granada in 1492. Do not miss the gallery with the works of Italian, Spanish and Flemish painters like Botticelli, Perugino and Bermejo.

El Albayzín. A Unesco World Heritage Site, it's the original Moorish district of the Nasrid period, located on the higher part of Granada, facing the Alhambra. A tangle of roads that climbs onto a hill side, with sheer walls, fountains, terraces and small squares surrounded by traditional houses.
