Of course, the list of tourist attractions in Granada is led by the wonderful Alhambra. This important architectural complex (an ancient walled city) is the most visited monument in Spain. Fully admiring its buildings and gardens can take several hours. It is advisable to buy tickets in advance, since the visit to the Nasrid Palaces may only be done within a certain hours. Buying tickets in advance will allow you to select the best time to visit them.

The second place you must visit in Granada, is the Cathedral. This imposing building, which houses the remains of the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, was built over  the Great Mosque. It has 13 chapels, and a Royal Chapel (next to the main hall). If you wish to visit The Cathedral , consider it closes on Sunday mornings.

Tourism in Granada would not be complete without a visit to any of the city’s Arab baths. We recommend going to the Arab Baths El Bañuelo, the oldest in town. Here you can admire the distribution of halls and learn more about this tradition. Visiting hours  are Tuesday through Saturday, from 9:00 to 12:30.

Would you like to see the wonderful postcard of the Alhambra and the Sierra at dusk? Then, visit the Mirador de San Nicolas. Not only will you enjoy the sight, but you will spend wonderful moments between artists and musicians who gather at the site.

Finally, an unforgettable visit to Granada includes a romantic walk through the streets of the Albaicin. Here you may see typical houses surrounded by gardens and important churches. It is also the ideal place to try some exotic infusion at  lovely tea shops while you take a rest from walking.
