Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the sunny Spanish province of Andalusia, Granada is a picturesque city with a Moorish heritage and colorful personality. The biggest attraction of the city is the famous Alhambra, the imposing palace and fortress complex overlooking Granada, with extensive gardens and lavish interiors. Explore the area of Sacromonte in the countryside just outside the city, with 150 “modern gypsy” cave homes and a fantastic view of Granada. While you’re there, see the Fuente del Aceituno (Fountain of Youth) to take a sip of the water and let the years fade away.

Take a short bus ride to the scenic town of Monachil to set off on an invigorating hike along the river in the Sierra Nevada mountains, and take your swimsuit for an opportunity to cool off in the rushing waters. Granada has a unique culinary scene, so sampling some tapas should take high priority. In many places, a plate of tapas comes with an order of drinks, so walk in and order a round of Tinto de Verano, Granda’s refreshing blend of red wine diluted with soda and lemon.
