Nobody could ever be surprised that this beautiful city in southern Spain was the favourite destination of the Catholic Monarchs. Its most iconic attraction is the Alhambra, the most spectacular Arab citadel in the world. But the city offers so much more...

The cradle of flamenco

The cathedral is an excellent place to start a tour of one of the most monumental cities in Spain. Next to the cathedral, the Royal Chapel is the pantheon of the Catholic Monarchs. The Albaicín quarter, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to the beauty and character of its houses and alleys, reflects the Arab and ancient Mediterranean architecture of its past. Sacromonte is another of its world-famous districts, and is also considered the cradle of flamenco. You should not miss one of the shows organized every day in Granada in the “zambras”, the caves that are used as a stage for the performances. But before you start dancing, recharge your batteries with a selection of the exquisite tapas served throughout the city.
