When the Iberian peninsula was still a Muslim land, this architectural wonder which is currently considered one of the ten most impressive and breathtaking monuments in the world was built. Different palaces and summer residences form a site, that was most appreciated by the "generalifes". A great fortress city with a wonderful view. Currently is the most visited monument in Spain and the UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1984. It´s located in Granada (Andalucía) where also are buried the former Catholic Kings of Spain in the Royal Chapel of the Cathedral. Two reasons to visit this beautiful city.
