Granada’s history is one of the most fascinating of Spain because the town has been settled by Muslims for nearly 8 centuries and was the last Moorish stronghold to be recaptured by the Christians in 1492. This eventful history is still present in the town, for example in the form of the famous monuments Alhambra and Generalife (fortress and palace) or the zone Albaicin with its mixture of typical Mujahardin and Spanish architecture.
