The 13 best things to do in Granada

Consult our list of best things to do in Granada if you want to experience one of Spain’s most captivating cities, which oozes both the languid sensuality of Al-Andalus and the brooding darkness of the Christian conquerors. The showstopping attraction is the Alhambra palace, which dominates the whole city from the top of a cliff. Below it, the modern town is crowned by a dazzling cathedral where the Catholic Kings, who brought about the fall of the last Moorish kingdom in Spain, lie in splendour. Pick your way through the medieval warren of the Albaícin to the cave dwellings of Sacromonte, where flamenco is at its purest, and linger in the city’s renowned tapas bars, mostly offering free tapas with drinks.
