Granada is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains and at the confluence of three rivers: the Beiro, the Darro and the Genil. As well, is only one hour by car from the Mediterranean coast. The city is famous for its main sight, la Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace which is part of the world heritage. The fortress and palace is considered the most renowned building of the Andalusian Islamic historical legacy with its many cultural attractions that make Granada a popular destination among the touristic cities of Spain. With its free tapas culture, abundant student population (Granada is the Erasmus top destination every year) and quirky Moroccan tea houses, Granada is Andalusia with a twist, that simply cries out to be explored.
