Granada Spain is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This page has photos of the city's major tourist attractions including the Alhambra, a series of palaces and gardens built in the 14th century, and within it, the summer palace called Generalife, with fountains and gardens. The Alhambra stands at the foot of Spain's highest mountain range, the Sierra Nevada. It overlooks the city below and the plains of Granada. This page also has photos of the immense Palace of Charles V, a beautiful example of Spanish Renaissance architecture at the center of the Alhambra. The Alhumbra is Granada's most famous monument and one of the most visited places in Spain. Be sure you reserve a ticket on-line ahead of time to avoid the long waits at the Alhumbra ticket counter.

Other photos here include the city's cathedrals, including the Royal Chapel where Isabel and Ferdinand lie buried, the Monastery of La Cartuja and many churches built by Moorish craftsmen in Granada's unique "mudéjar" style. Granada is one of the top travel destinations of Spain. The photos of Granada on this page can be viewed in the Slideshow below.
