Granada is a historical and beautiful city within the Andalusia region of Spain. Many travelers visit Granada to admire its ancient architecture, famous monuments, and other living museums that are common in the city’s streets. Granada’s location nestled in the mountains makes for a drop dead gorgeous background to any high ground that you get to during your visit there, so be sure to appreciate the geography at least once.
Granada’s hotels are mostly in its downtown area north of the Genil river and east of the main train station. Granada’s hotels tend to be on the boutique side, and are often very old.

My favorite city in Andalusia, especially as a student! One of the only places to still offer free tapas with a drink purchase. And it's worth it to go and see the Alhambra alone.
The city that keeps my heart linger on it. The beautiful mixture of Moorish and Spanish decorations that pasted all over the buildings around the city, made my visit so pleasing and enjoyable. Mostly the city's attraction is close to one another, which makes an enjoyable walk, which also gives the different surprise for one area to another. Moreover, the massive Sierra Nevada mountains range is reachable from Granada.
One of my favorite cities in Spain!! A must visit & you have to go to the Alhambra! Such a beautiful place & can't wait to go back!
Visit Granada on a day trip - walk around the Alhambra (book online in advance) and wander around the town. If visiting in winter, you can ski on the mountains above!
