The Andalucían city of Granada is set below the spectacular snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is home to the Alhambra, a magnificent Moorish stronghold whose Alcazaba fortress, beautiful palaces, elaborate courtyards and luxurious residences were a triumph of Islamic art and workmanship. On the hill top facing the Alhambra is the old Arab-Jewish quarter of Albaicin – a honeycomb of cobbled streets, whitewashed houses, plazas and historic buildings. Also worth exploring is the Gothic cathedral with its Royal Chapel (Capilla Real), built as the mausoleum of Ferdinand and Isabella.
