Home to the majestic immensity of the Alhambra palace complex, Granada has an obvious focal point. But as wondrous and well-preserved as the Alhambra is – and you can spend hours gazing up at its Islamic arches and ornate arabesques – the destination also holds further riches. It’s one of the biggest and hippest cities in Andalusia, meaning you’ll find everything from tapas bars and flamenco joints to swish boutique hotels and on-trend nightclubs. And with the pull of both beaches and mountains on the doorstep, it’s an excellent base for wider regional exploration.
