Tips from the community

If you could only visit one attraction in all of Spain, the Alhambra would have a pretty compelling case. Dating back to the 14th century, this breathtaking palace and fortress complex showcases the extravagant Moorish architecture of the Nasrid Dynasty–an essential chapter of Spain’s complicated history. Between the royal residences, military barracks, and brimming nature, it’s easy to get lost in everything that the Alhambra offers. Perched upon a hill that towers over the city, this site has heart-stopping views of Granada and the Andalusian countryside set against the brooding Sierra Nevada mountain range. Be sure to also check out the Generalife Gardens for an amazing display of manicured gardens with long flowing water channels that make for a scenic walk.
