About Granada monuments

In the map above you can see the location of many of the major sights of Granada. We detail some more information on them to make your visit to this province as complete as possible:

The Alhambra

Situated in C/Real Street in the heart of the old town. The Alhambra was the residential palace of the Sultan of Al-Andalus, Ibn Yusuf. A fortress on the outside and a haven of luxury and ornaments inside, which was built in the year 1234 taking advantage of the land and its natural resources.

This palace / citadel has been the residence of sultans and senior military officers. Of the Alhambra can be highlighted several parts: The Palaces, the Alcazaba, the Medina or city where lived the senior militaries and gardens of the Generalife, built to be the resting place of monarchs and where they could get away from the worries of the palace.
