• Granada, main image
  • Overview

    One of the most alluring and enthralling cities in all of Spain, Granada has much to offer, including one of Europe’s finest treasures, the Alhambra. Built at the foot of the astonishing Sierra Nevada, the splendour of this historically fascinating town is immersive. Sensual, intoxicating, exciting and romantic Granada is extraordinarily compelling.

    The sumptuous Alhambra palace is a shrine to the medieval history of Islam; when western Europe succumbed to the dark ages, the Alhambra shone a light which bathes Granada in its reflected glory to this day. But there is much more. The white washed houses, secluded gardens and narrow streets of the old Moorish quarter, Albaicin, are a delight. The city’s five nave Renaissance cathedral and Gothic chapel are almost as impressive as the Alhambra; the 16th century monastery is one of Spain’s gaudiest Baroque buildings. And the caves of Sacromonte are enshrined in the work of poet and playwright Garcia Lorca and home to generations of travellers who live to perform the Flamenco.
