Best places to visit in Granada

Granada, a jewel nestled in the heart of Andalusia, Spain, is a place where history whispers from every corner, where the legacy of Moorish and Catholic monarchs vibrantly lives on. Known for its iconic Alhambra palace, this city is a treasure trove of cultural experiences and stunning architecture. If you're planning a trip to this mesmerizing city, here are some must-visit spots that capture its essence, and for an enhanced experience, consider Happytripz for expertly guided excursions in Granada.

Alhambra and Generalife

  • The Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the most iconic symbol of Granada. This sprawling hilltop fortress complex encompasses royal palaces, tranquil courtyards, and reflective pools, all set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Make sure to book your tickets in advance, as they sell out fast. Stroll through the lush gardens of the Generalife, an extension of the Alhambra, which served as a summer palace for the Nasrid kings.


  • Step back in time as you wander the cobbled streets of Albayzín, the old Moorish quarter. The neighborhood is a labyrinth of whitewashed houses, charming plazas, and narrow lanes that reveal stunning views of the Alhambra. Visit the Mirador de San Nicolás for a postcard-perfect panorama, especially at sunset when the walls of the Alhambra glow under the golden light.

Cathedral and Royal Chapel

  • The imposing Granada Cathedral, with its grand façade and lavish interior, represents the Christian conquest of the city. It's a sterling example of Spanish Renaissance architecture. Adjacent is the Royal Chapel, the burial place of Catholic Monarchs, Queen Isabella I and King Ferdinand II. Their ornate tombs are a testament to the city's historic turning point.


  • Wander up to Sacromonte, the traditional gypsy quarter known for its cave dwellings that are carved into the hillside. Today, many of these caves are still inhabited, and some have been converted into flamenco venues where you can enjoy a passionate performance along with dinner. The area also has a fascinating museum that delves into the history and lifestyle of the cave residents.

Plaza Nueva and Carrera del Darro

  • Considered the heart of Granada, Plaza Nueva provides a lovely space to relax and people-watch. Take a stroll along the Carrera del Darro, one of the most beautiful streets in Granada, with the Darro River running alongside it, and historical buildings towering above.

El Bañuelo

  • Don't miss El Bañuelo, one of the best-preserved Arab baths in Spain. Tucked away at the base of the Albayzín, these ancient baths serve as a reminder of the city's Moorish influence and offer a glimpse into the daily life of its past inhabitants.

Every corner of Granada weaves its own tale of epochs long past, manifesting in art, cuisine, and music. Exploring this city rewards travelers with a nuanced understanding of Spain's multi-layered history.
