At the foot of the Sierra Nevada, between the Darro and Genil rivers, lies one of the most interesting cities in Eastern Andalusia. The impressive Andalusian legacy is combined with architectural jewels from the Renaissance and the most modern facilities of the 21st century.

The fact of being the last city reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492 gives Granada an unmistakable Arab aroma. Its gastronomy, craftsmanship and urban planning are determined by its glorious historical past.

Fountains, viewpoints and Cármenes, the homes surrounded by gardens characteristic of this city, contribute to creating unforgettable corners. Not in vain, one of its old neighborhoods, the Albaicín, is a World Heritage Site along with the Alhambra and the Generalife. An important cultural center for long centuries, both during Muslim and Christian rule, it currently enjoys an enviable cultural and leisure agenda. Film, music or theater series and festivals are complemented by permanent and traveling exhibitions that cover all areas of knowledge. Old Renaissance palaces host seminars, conferences and colloquiums, while the most innovative infrastructures are prepared for major events.
