- A 700-year occupation of the Moors has left many influences in the city of Granada. The Alhambra is a unique example. It is the biggest attraction of Granada and Moorish art in Spain. The Alhambra is a fortress that served to defend the city, and as a safe residence for the king. The Alhambra was once a real town-within-a-city including schools, shops, and mosques.
Today -despite the large masses of tourist- the Alhambra is still a paradise with beautiful palaces, exquisite interiors, and plenty of fountains.
Granada offers however much more. Enjoy a lovely walk in the town and visit its numerous beautiful squares, historic neighborhoods and significant buildings - such as the Royal Chapel, the Cathedral, and the Charles V Palace.
