Alhambra

Highly recommended
With its fascinating architecture, sumptuous gardens and delightful water features, the Alhambra is the embodiment of refinement, where words fail to do justice to this paradise created by the Nasrid princes as the ultimate expression of a civilisation in decline. Both a fortress and a royal city, this architectural masterpiece is considered one of the most beautiful and best-preserved Arab palaces ever built in the world.
