Set at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in southern Spain, the grand Andalusian city of Granada is best known for the Alhambra, the symbol of Europe’s colorful Moorish history from the Middle Ages. The palace complex is perched on a hilltop and features domed and arched structures, unexpected inner courtyards with stone fountains, ornamental doorways, arched windows, and tranquil gardens. Several other Islamic architectural gems as well as towering churches, edgy street art and numerous tapas bars serving some of the region’s best food and wine dot the city’s landscape. Find yourself a comfortable corner at a traditional Arab teahouse (teterías) and nibble on Moorish pastries and pancakes as you catch the local color. Or sit atop a sunny terrace with strains of Flamenco music in your ears, enjoying Iberian ham, olives and ‘Patatas a lo Pobre’, delicious cakes with custard cream, and sherries, savoring the city’s vibe!
