Overview

The distinctive rose-hued Alhambra palace complex dominates Granada, overlooking the sprawling city from its vantage point high up on La Sabica Hill.  Inside is one of the more splendid sights of Europe, a network of lavishly decorated palaces and irrigated gardens, a World Heritage Site and the subject of scores of legends and fantasies.

Granada is not just about the magnificent Alhambra though; everything in this city is influenced by its glorious past.  The world renowned palaces and fortresses of the Nasrid Dynasty and the historical Moorish Albaicín Quarter are both designated as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Granada also boasts a Renaissance cathedral dating from the 16th century and many other magnificent architectural monuments.
