Alhambra
Granada is the home to beautiful palace Alhambra which was built by the Moors. You might have seen it in the Memories of Alhambra. The name of the city derives from its historic beauty. The palace is the main attraction of Granada City which is a must-visit place of everyone who visits the Granada. The hilltop fortress, serene patios, reflecting pools and as well as the fountains and orchards of the Generalife gardens were built under the rule of the Nasrid dynasty of caliphs. They wanted to create their version of paradise on earth by building this magical palace which still wonders its visitors today. The melding of stone and water of the Alhambra makes it an architectural masterpiece providing calm and coolness, especially in the mid-summer sun.

The ancient Moorish quarter of the Albayzín gives a feel of the Moorish influence and culture that is all over this city. It is a wonderful place to relax while enjoying a meal or drink in one of the many bars and restaurants as the sun sets over the Alhambra.

Sierra Nevada Mountains
The southern part of the Granada rises high up to the mountains of the Sierra Nevadas which is Spain’s highest mountain range as they are so close to the Mediterranean coast and at such a low latitude. It is the home to ski resorts in the winter. In summer the mountains offer many outdoor activities and the chance to explore and view some of the nature that lives at these altitudes. As the mountains are pretty close to the sea you can ski in the morning and swim in the Mediterranean in the afternoon, though you’d be pretty rushed getting it all in.
