Alhambra

Alhambra and surrounding area

The Alhambra complex is the world's most spectacular Arab citadel and the symbol of Granada. It comprises several visitable areas: the Alcazaba, a citadel with a watchtower; the Palace of Charles V, a Christian building that houses the Fine Arts Museum; the Generalife, a leisure residence and gardens; and the Nasrid Palaces, the heart of the Alhambra and home of the sultans.

Other monuments and attractions on the hill and forest of the Alhambra are also worth a visit: the Carmen de los Mártires, one of the most romantic gardens in Granada; and the Rodriguez-Acosta Foundation, declared a national monument for its architecture and gardens.
