    Associate Granada at the Alhambra, but there are several testimonies they left us by the Arab culture and leave really speechless. One of these is the Madrasa. Just look out on the plane to get an idea and understand the magnitude of this building.

    Small but very interesting, very close to the Cathedral, I recommend you do it, if you jump on the clock thing you can jump.

    The Madrasa was the first University of Granada, founded in the 14th century. Nice building that after several vicissitudes is owned by the University of Granada and seat of cultural activities. Nice the building although edited when it was used as the headquarters of the cabildo. Note the decoration of the room was to the original style.

  • Very good tour guide. A must-see in Granada.
  • Beautiful building and excellent conference room.
  • See the original school built by the muslims
  • The highlight for me was the ornate woodwork ceiling.
  • Highly recommended to visit. It was the first University of Granada. Today held a multitude of cultural activities organized by the Ugr.

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.
