Sandwiched between the crisp peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the unspoiled beaches of the Costa Tropical, the city of Granada - in Spain’s Andalucían region - has a privileged position, flanked by beauty on all sides. Many travellers from far and wide have a soft spot for this incredible city, one that’s strongly rooted in its Moorish past, with spice-infused cuisine; a historic Arabic quarter, Albayzín;
street markets reminiscent of Moroccan souks; and, most famously, the mesmerising palace and fortress of Alhambra. Conquered in 1492 by Catholic kings, Granada is distinguished by its refined Mudejar architecture that can be poured over at every turn and the city’s magnificent Cathedral, a fine example of baroque and renaissance style, a soaring work of art not to be missed. Granada is not all Spanish heritage and traditional sights though, the modern influence here is displayed in its growing collection of contemporary boutique hotels, impressive Science Park, lively nightlife and bustling bars serving tapas all night long. Granada holidays are the perfect addition to any trip to Spain.
