The central city and capital of the province of Granada, the city of Granada, has been home to settlers since before records began and has been influenced over the centuries by many cultures and religions.
The Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace in Granada, is world famous and is a hot spot in Spain for both cultural tourists and pilgrimages from Muslims, Christians, and the Jewish.
With several other palaces and cathedrals, museums, and many interesting architectural acheivements - including the complex of Arabic wells which are unique in Europe, there are certainly many sights to take in.
It's easy to find hotels in Granada, but depending on the season, it might be difficult to find a place to stay, so we recommend you to book in advance your accommodation in Granada.
We would like to mention Sierra Nevada, the unique ski resort in Andalucia and one of the top ten ski resorts in Europe.
The enviable location of Sierra Nevada allows you to practise skiing in the morning and relax on the beach in the evening (it is just 45 minutes from the coast of Almuñecar, Granada, and no more than 2 hours away from Malaga).
