ShoreTrips says...

Those who are fortunate enough to visit Granada often consider it the highlight of their time in Spain. Between Alhambra Palace and an eclectic group of locals, you will soon learn why there isn't another city like this in the world.

Enjoy the beautiful countryside during your ride to Granada. Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Granada was the stronghold of the last great Moorish Kingdom in Spain. Although the entire historic city is filled with cultural treasures, its main attraction is the Alhambra Palace, a Moorish citadel that overlooks the city. At the time it was built, this mighty fortress and luxury residence was one of the most lavish palaces that Spain had ever known.

Dating back to the 14th century, this palace of sultans stands as one of the best examples of Islamic art in all the world. Led by an official guide, you will wander through the courtyards and elegant halls, and past many fountains and ponds set amongst dazzling gardens. You will also walk through the beautiful Gardens of Generalife, the hunting lodge, and country retreat where the rulers and their wives went to escape the turmoil of the palace.

There are several spots where you can grab a nice bite to eat.

ADVICE: It is very difficult to obtain the timed ticket you need for a convenient entrance to Alhambra. Please book this as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

No other monument gives such a vivid picture of what it was like to live in the heyday of Moorish culture in Spain.
