If there is a city in Spain that evokes all the essence of this country that is definitely Granada. Crossing civilizations since time immemorial and located in an unbeatable location. Granada is configured as a vibrant, lively, cultural and nearby metropolis. Try the Granada Flamenco which has strong gypsy routes.
Granada, capital of the province that bears the same name, is located southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. It has been the traditional capital of Upper Andalusia or eastern Andalusia. This comprises of the provinces of Jaén, Granada and Almería, as opposed to Lower Andalusia or Western Andalusia. In addition to this traditional capital, Granada holds the judicial capital of Andalusia. The city also holds the seat of the High Court of Justice of this autonomous community.
No one forgets the first time they saw the Alhambra, the most spectacular and famous Arab construction in the world. I remember my first visit there I was literally spellbound by the sheer beauty and amazing constructions. The Alhambra is the flagship of Granada’s vast historical heritage. Therefore it monitors the city from its hill, a city that attracts about three million visitors every year.
The Alhambra has been a Palatine city, palace of kings and fortress, all in one. The complex is an amazing construction: It has no main facade, no center, no particular axis. Buildings, towers, palaces, courtyards and gardens happen naturally. Above all as if the lives of its inhabitants had been designing them.
From anywhere in the city, you can see the boat-shaped silhouette, dotted with cypress trees, of a monument that for twelve centuries has been the emblem of Granada.
The province of Granada is home to a wide variety of natural spaces including a national park and five natural parks. Also along with numerous places of rich environmental value.
In all of them we can find a wide variety of plant and animal species, many of them widespread.
