Things to see in Granada
The former summer home of Nasrid sultans hides magical spots such as the Water Channel Courtyard and the Water Steps.
The poet from Granada, who wrote his best works at this family summer home, fled one afternoon in August of 1936 to meet his tragic destiny.
Built in 1349 by the Nasrid dynasty, it was the city’s first temple of knowledge until the Inquisition closed its doors and burnt its library.
This 19th century property with gorgeous and romantic gardens of varying styles was built on the site of a former monastery where San Juan de la Cruz wrote his works.
The melancholic nickname of this street along the bank of the Darro River contrasts its traditional festive atmosphere and unbeatable views of the Alhambra.
This jewel of Nasrid architecture has had various uses over the years: from serving as a grain storage to a carbon-merchant inn, today it is a venue for concerts and plays.
Granada has several historic hammams dating back to the Nasrid era, in addition to newer establishments where visitors can feel like a sultan with a steam bath and some tea.
Construction on the temple where Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba is buried began in the 16th century and marked the shift from the Middle Ages to the modern era in Granada.
