"There is nothing as sad as being blind in Granada." This line from a poem perfectly captures the splendour of the last Muslim kingdom in Spain. While the modern Christian town stretches out across the plain, the Moorish town occupies Granada's hills. This harmonious and majestic city, an intimate blend of art and history, has as its backdrop the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada. The Alhambra is without doubt one of the world's most spellbinding sights.
