Featuring a collection of spectacular structures, cultural hotspots, and epic views, Granada has it all.
Granada stands out among other Andalusian cities with a modernistic feel at the foot of the mountains. It is an atmospheric landscape above all. Yet, numerous realms are tucked away in the outer districts. The city has no shortage of historical landmarks either. The famous Alhambra sprawls before the blue mountaintops in striking contrast. A world in itself, the palace hosts several patios, pavilions, verdant courtyards, and tile-trimmed lookouts. Not to mention the supernal Generalife garden. The manicured garden serves as a private oasis for the sun-dried palace.
Down in the city’s vivid downtown, the streets reverberate with an outgoing, youthful culture. On top of everything, it is a bustling university town. It is also a center for nightlife, which earned the city its acclaimed modernity. Dive bars and entertainment centers of all sorts welcome visitors for long nights. Intimate flamenco clubs embrace a blend of modern and traditional approaches.
By night, dive into the dimly lit alleys of the old Arab quarter. It is the equal of the east when it comes to bohemian allure and a quaint ambiance. No salutation is left unanswered in the cozy teahouses. And ivy-swathed windows offer intriguing, often eerie glimpses into the rusty shops. The viewpoint in the quarter is also home to the most spectacular scenery of Alhambra.
