Granada

4.2

Pearl of Spain

Granada boasts numerous well-preserved examples of exquisite Moorish architecture, not the least of which is the Alhambra, an ancient citadel and royal palace. Though its historical buildings attract the most tourism, Granada is much more than just an ancient city center. Home to one of the country’s biggest universities, Granada has a population of about 80,000 students, spread over five sprawling city campuses. Its outlying districts are known for their youthful energy, innovative bars, and hip flamenco clubs. Also offering exciting skiing and hiking opportunities in the nearby Sierra Nevada, there’s no shortage of things to do. This hill city is a welcome break from the rest of Andalucía’s summer heat. Granada is in Province of Granada. With our custom trip planner, Spain vacations can be built around trips to Granada and other destinations in Spain.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
