Take a moment, stand still, close your eyes, and you can almost feel the history of the city whispering to you.
Sitting on the foothills that lead up to the picturesque Sierra Nevadas, Granada has been home to over 2,500 years of human civilization.
This has given people enough time to create amazing sights like the the Alhambra, a palace, fortress, and one of the most striking testaments to Islamic culture in Spain, a site that travelers come from all over the world to see.
But not even a piece of history like the Alhambra is immune to the multicultural influences present in Granada with renovations and refurbishments done by generations of Catholic royalty.
This multicultural presence has touched almost every part of the city and led to conflicts sometimes pouring into the city, other times sparked within its ethnic neighborhoods.
While these conflicts resulted in periodic turmoil in Granada’s history they have created a beautiful and interesting city unlike any other in Spain.
Those that have had the opportunity to travel to Granada can testify that even stunning pictures of the city do not do justice to its magnificence.
