Day visit to Granada

Granada is the best example of the moorish brightness in Spain.

☞ The region surrounding what today is Granada has been populated since at least 5500 B.C. and has experienced Roman and gothic influences. The most ancient ruins found in the city belong to an Iberian oppidum called Ilturir, in the region known as Bastetania.

Situated nearby the majestic Sierra Nevada, this city has fascinated travellers from all over the world throughout its history. Its moorish, christian, baroque and romantic legacy have raised Granada to one of the main cultural models in the country.

The old city, with narrow and winding streets, keeps a wide variety of pleasures for the five senses: the smell of Azahar, the taste of the local tapas, the feel of the sun on the skin, the sound of the water runs, the fresh air, and some really astounding landscapes. Granada is known to be the last kingdom of Al-Andalus, where art and history are bound together to captivate the senses. Other monuments and attractions on the hill and forest of the Alhambra are also worth a visit: the Carmen de los Mártires, one of the most romantic gardens in Granada; and the Rodriguez-Acosta Foundation, declared a national monument for its architecture and gardens. At present, the buildings of Granada are typically bourgeois in appearance, with much of the architecture dating from the 19th Century, together with numerous Renaissance and Baroque buildings.

The greatest artistic wealth of Granada is its Spanish-Muslim art— in particular, the compound of the Alhambra and the Generalife. The Generalife is a pleasure palace with attached romantic gardens, remarkable both for its location and layout, as well as for the diversity of its flowers, plants and fountains. The Alhambra is the architectural culmination of the works of Nasrid art that were undertaken in the 13th and 14th centuries, with most  of the Alhambra having been built at the time of Yusuf I and Mohammed V, between 1333 and 1354.

The Alhambra complex is the world’s most spectacular Arab citadel and the symbol of Granada. It comprises several visitable areas: the Alcazaba, a citadel with a watchtower; the Palace of Charles V, a Christian building that houses the Fine Arts Museum; the Generalife, a leisure residece and gardens; and the Nasrid Palaces, the heart of the Alhambra and home of the sultans.
