Spend the night in the Alhambra complex, among gardens and fountains that evoke a past in which the Arab and the Christian intermingled. This is the exclusive opportunity offered by the Parador de Granada, a former monastery built on the orders of the Catholic Monarchs on the site of a Nasrid palace, the remains of which have been preserved in the Nazarí Room. The hotel has an enchanting interior, in keeping with the magic exuded by every corner of the city. Works of art and exceptional furniture decorate the cloister and interior rooms. In the dining room and on the cool summer terrace, we offer Andalusian gazpacho, habas a la granadina (fava beans with artichokes) and piononos (sponge cake rolls topped with cream), which are originally from the small local town of Santa Fe. Come experience this idyllic spot, a magical city, a one-of-a-kind experience.
The Alhambra and Generalife Palace complex, Granada's most emblematic monument, exudes beauty at every turn. Its gardens are among the most romantic spots in the city. Its colors, the scent of the flowers and the sound of water create a truly intoxicating atmosphere. Another marvelous area is the old Arab neighborhood of El Albaicín, made up of a network of white houses on a hill, with baroque churches and Arab cisterns. La Cartuja Monastery, the cathedral, the Arab baths and Parque de las Ciencias (Science Park) are just some of the city's infinite treasures. Travelers will also not want to miss an evening visit to see a zambra (gypsy dance) in one of the caves in the Sacromonte neighborhood.
In addition to its World Heritage Site monuments such as the Alhambra and the Albaicín quarter, Granada is also a university town that never sleeps. Its streets invite you to experience the fascinating and magical night-time atmosphere.
