In the heart of Spain's southernmost region, Andalucía, Granada embodies everything that one would imagine Spain to be. The people are friendly and love life, but just make sure you have a good grasp of the Spanish language as English is scarce spoken by most Granadinos.

To me, this is the heart of Andalucia. Its Moorish past still says its story through the buildings - especially the Alhambra. The giant palace often takes most of the spotlight, but any visitor should explore more in Granada than just the palace. You can watch real flamenco here, especially in the caves of Sacromonte. Eat tapas as they were originally intended: free with every drink you purchase. Wander the Albayzin, and have tea in a teteria.

The crown jewel of Andalucia. Granada is absolutely beautiful. The town itself is very charming and situated in the middle of the Sierra Nevada, with spectacular views of the mountains. The Alhambra is one of the wonders of the Islamic world, and a true architectural masterpiece. It is a must see in Spain, and one of my favorite places that I have visited any where in the world.

My husband and I loved this city. Wish we had more time there. It's a small town so you can walk every where without being exhausted especially during the summer time with the heat. The best thing about this city beside the Alhambre is the free tapas with every drink you order. Amazingly delicious tapas!!!!

Each spanish city has its own chatacteristics, they are similar in some ways but in fact very different. I would say that Granada is maybe the most particular. Here it is possible to admire a very strong Moorish footprint mixed with the vitality of the nightlife. There is a big University here and students activities and presence are very strong and visible. It is so enchanting walking through the ancient areas of the city, through narrow passages and suddenly arriving in large squares with imposing buildings.

While Spain isn't my favorite country in Europe (for that, it's all about Italy), I do love Andalucia and the south of Spain. The Alhambra in Granada is one of the most incredible buildings, especially if you're interested in the mix of different architectural styles in one building. The city center's medieval core is the perfect mix of windy ancient streets, modern restaurants and bars, and international culture.

Is a must to see in Spain...come and visit the royal palace of Granada fronting the old cathedral of the city. And don't forget to bring your best camera and click every angle you like in Alhambra castle...even from afar you can see the beauty of the the castle's light especially during at sunset/ dusk. And of course enjoy shopping around the center of the city ...you'll never regret when the 'rebajas' is in the air...

Granada is great! You should definitely get down there while you're in the south of Spain. The city is a great mixture of Northern African and Spanish cultures. A visit to La Alhambra is a must. It's a giant castle overlooking the city which provides amazing views of the entire city. You also have to go to Old Town which dates back 1,000 years. The streets are small and quaint and full of shops, restaurants, and really interesting people.
