Occupying a superb setting with the peaks of the Sierra Nevada as a backdrop, Granada is one of Spain's most beautiful cities, with a wealth of culture highlights and a prestigious university that attract visitors and students from around the world. The majestic Alhambra, overlooking the Albayzín, the former Moorish city, is of course the main highlight here, while the troglodyte houses of Sacromonte are the setting for flamenco performances. When you've finished exploring, Granada is renowned for its tapas!
