The Alhambra is undoubtedly the most emblematic monument of the city of Granada. This imposing fortress, in which the monarch and the court of the Nazari Kingdom of Granada lived, is an impressive example of Mozarabic art. The appeal of the Alhambra lies not only in its interiors but also in its location. With Sierra Nevada in the background, it generates a breathtaking landscape. The most famous place to enjoy these spectacular views is the Mirador de San Nicolás. In the company of flamenco artists who are often singing and dancing in the viewpoint, we can admire the beautiful landscape of the lands known as the “last breath of the Moor.”

The Arab legacy is present throughout the city of Granada. Another example is the famous Alcaicería, a typical neighborhood of Muslim culture, where granadina crafts are sold today.
