Monuments and great places to visit
Your first visit begins in the Alhambra, considered as one of the most impressive and well maintained Moorish palaces of Spain; not in vain, in 2011 was the country’s most visited monument. The dimensions of the Alhambra are amazing, full of halls, courtyards and other featured spaces as the Generalife, the Palace of Carlos V, the Arab baths and the Alcazaba.
The Cathedral is one of the most important monuments in Granada. Its construction dates back to the sixteenth century beginning in 1526 and ending after 35 years. Renaissance Cathedral rises majestically from the outside to dazzle the traveller when he enters, with its domes, columns, ornamentation and chapels which together greatly embellish its interior.
The San Nicolas viewpoint provides views of the city you cannot see in any other place; we recommend visiting it at sunset.
During your trip to Granada you can discover other interesting sites for tourists. Take a stroll through the park of Jardines de Triunfo, also through Plaza Nueva. If you enjoy the Alhambra and the Cathedral, complete your day visiting the Monastery of La Cartuja, the Sacromonte Abbey, the Church of Santo Domingo, discover the Albaicin, etc..
