collageTravel Granada
by HAMZA

Granada is located in Granada Province in the Andalusia region of Spain. Rich in history and culture, it is arguably the single most worthwhile city in Spain for a tourist. In addition to a rich multicultural history, the Alhambra and other monuments, a student-driven nightlife, and skiing and trekking in the nearby Sierra Nevada, Granada offers a break from the summer heat of other Andalusian cities such as Cordoba or Seville. Spring and fall are also both excellent times to visit. With much more cultural interest than other cities like Malaga, Granada is never overcrowded. Most buildings of that pre-Renaissance era were destroyed, but the spectacular Alhambra still attracts visitors from all over the world. It is one of the most important monuments in Spain and a UNESCO national heritage site, along with the Albayzin quarter, in the hill just opposite it. The beautiful whitewashed houses and the colourful flowers in the courtyards and on balconies are some of the things worth looking out for, as are the many sights of historic interest. Granada has a very lively flair thanks to the approximately 60,000 students of the local university. The city is quite near the beach and during winter you can ski in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, which is 30km away. Among the modern attractions, El Parque de las Ciencias, a science interactive museum, is worth visiting and you should also try going to the Zaidin quarter, around the soccer stadium.
