Tips

Granada es la herencia por excelencia de la España morisca. Esta ciudad de tamaño mediano alberga el mejor conjunto monumental del mundo de la arquitectura del siglo xv y de la cultura norte africana: la impresionante ciudadela y los palacios de la Alhambra, donde Colón consiguió el visto bueno real para explorar el "nuevo mundo". Se recomienda visita a La Alhambra, declarado patrimonio de la humanidad donde tendrás que reservar para visitarla y pagar su entrada correspondiente con opción a visitas guiadas. Recorrerás la famosa calle Elvira, el Paseo de los Tristes y el mirador de San Nicolás.

See the tip in the third PoI below about pre-booking your Alhambra tickets online (the link to do so is in 'other resources'). Turning up on the day can mean standing in a queue for two or three hours, with no guarantee of getting in. There is a popular hotel inside the Alhambra complex but that doesn't give you free range over the palace grounds at night. The Albaicin district at the bottom of the hill offers much more atmosphere in a Moorish neighborhood.

One day trail exploring back streets of Granada to include the cathedral and the hike up to St Nicolás viewpoint of the Alhambra. A quick coffee at the local cafe on the square and then onward to the Alhambra palace. A fantastic days walking and recommended.
