Granada is probably one of the most impressive cities in the world. It is situated at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, which serves as a breathtaking backdrop to this beautiful and diverse city. Granada is a student town and in comparison to Seville, has a more down to earth ambience.

The Albaicin district, located along the river Darro looks over to the Alhambra and is the most enchanting area of Granada reminding you, with its many teahouses, of the Moorish occupation. Indulge yourself in one of the Hammams here (Moorish baths). The district of Sacramento is situated behind the Albaicin and has caves, which up to this day are the homes of the gypsies. Today, like yesterday, they still have Flamenco performances, but these are considered more as exploitations of the tourists. At night, the caves fill with students, turning them into discos, bringing a different kind of atmosphere to this area.
Also the Christians have demonstrated their arts of construction arts. The royal vault, the cathedral, the palace of Karel V and the Carthusian convent are some examples.
Granada also has uncountable beautiful squares, historical yielding and unique nature. As from a lot of places you have breathtaking views.
This is the area of the sierra Nevada, even in summertime you see snow on the mountain tops. Up to May you can ski.

A Moor occupation of 700 years has there stamp has left his marks. The Alhambra is well known. This is the top attraction of the city and the Moor art in Spain and is certainly worthwile a visit. There is only a limited number of visitors allowed a day. For timetable see: www.alhambra-patronato.es
