What to See and Do in Granada

Granada is an outstanding architectural and cultural gem in a country that isn't exactly short on such offerings. By far the main site in Granada is the Alhambra. This vast complex of gardens, palaces, and forts was where the Moors once ruled their Spanish kingdom from. The history, architecture, and gardens of this UNESCO World Heritage Site are stunning and you should schedule a full day to really appreciate it.
