Watch our video itineraries as we explore this diverse city for three days. We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in Granada, Spain – home to the Alhambra on the mountain top. We loved staying within the old city walls and wandering through after all the tourists left for the day. Such a magical experience.
Granada is a city in southern Spain’s Andalusia region, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It’s known for grand examples of medieval architecture dating to the Moorish occupation, especially the Alhambra. This sprawling hilltop fortress complex encompasses royal palaces, serene patios, and reflecting pools from the Nasrid dynasty, as well as the fountains and orchards of the Generalife gardens.
