Granada is the Cradle of Moorish kingdom, land of the conquerors and the conquered and full of history. Spring is the perfect season to visit Granada. If you only have a day in Granada, we have some recommendations to enjoy the perfect route to tour the city.
In the Morning: La Alhambra
La Alhambra is the second most visited monument in Spain, for this reason is important to buy the tickets some weeks before the trip.
Granada enjoys being one of the most important cultural heritages of the country. The first is clear: the beloved and beautiful Alhambra, jewel of the Moorish kingdom and Historical Heritage Site by UNESCO. There are only two shifts a day to visit. We recommend going in the first round in the morning and do not go without tickets. Visit La Generalife, The Palaces and Gardens will take all morning to see but it is a worthwhile visit.

After a filling lunch accompanied by some beer or wine, what is better to continue discovering the monumental city. You should visit the Cathedral which was built as a symbol of Christianity and the conquest of the Catholic Kings who are buried in the Royal Chapel. It took almost 200 years to build and has passed through the hands of different Spanish architects. It is a symbol of the Spanish Renaissance.
By midafternoon, you should walk by the Carrera del Darro and drink on the terraces of the Paseo de los Tristes from where you can see the red towers of the Alhambra. As evening falls you can go to neighborhood of Churra or climb the Albaicin, the magical and bohemian neighborhood of Granada. Do not miss the sunset at the Mirador de San Nicolas where the Alhambra is filled with the background music of guitars of the flamenco singers that will dazzle and invite you back … You can be sure of that!
