The Moors first crossed the strait of Gibraltar in 711 to settle in what would later become one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Their heritage has left its splendid mark on this culturally diverse city. The old districts in the Albaicín and the Alhambra are truly impressive places, as well as the city's Renaissance jewels, such as the breathtaking cathedral.
Such is the richness of Granada, an ancient city that rose as the capital of the Moorish occupancy in Spain and developed its own unique atmosphere mixed with the natural beauty of its surroundings. The town is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at the convergence of the Darro and Genil rivers.
