Granada is a wonderful city with 260.000 inhabitants, which lies 700 metres above sea level. The famous Alhambra dominates the cityscape. This part fortress, part palace gets its name from the hill on which it stands, the "Al-Hambra" or the "Red One".

The Alhambra was built during the last Islamic sultanate on the Iberian peninsula: the Nasrid Dynasty (1238-1492). The palace is lavishly decorated with stone and wood carvings and tile patterns on most of the ceilings, walls, and floors. All outstanding examples of Islamic art which does not use representations of living beings, but heavily uses geometric patterns, especially symmetric (repeating) patterns.

The old city walls guarded the rich heritage from the time of the moors and it is this which gives the city its unique character.

While in Granada be sure to visit the cathedral and the Royal Chapel, where the magnificent marble tombs of King Ferdinand and his Queen, Isabella, their daughter Juana the Mad, and son in law, Philip the Fair are kept. The sacristy has on display Ferdinand's sword and Isabel's crown and sceptre. King Ferdinand was the Monarch who ended the occupation of Spain by the Moors.

The Albaicin neighbourhood is also very interesting and is a Spanish National Monument in itself. This was once the Arab silk market and now features small, winding streets with shops selling local handicrafts.

In the evening why not attend a Flamenco show in one of the gypsy caves in the Sacromonte district.

Interesting day trips include a drive to the region of La Alpujarra and visit its villages. These include Lanjaron; which has a famous spa, Carataunas and Trevelez which is the highest village in Spain. In winter there is good skiing in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park which can be seen clearly across the valley from the Alhambra.

Popular religious and cultural festivals that take place in Granada include:

Easter and Corpus Christi when there are processions through the streets.
The International Music and Dance Festival in late June and early July.
The Festival of the Cross held on May 3.
The International Jazz Festival in November.
