Nestled at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada is the majestic Kingdom of Granada. Much like the other cities in Andalusia, Granada boasts an eclectic mix of old world European and North African influence, and a modern metropolitan flavor that draws in visitors by the hundreds of thousands.

History and culture buffs will flock to its numerous heritage sites, cathedrals, museums and of course, the Alhambra. Thrill seekers need only venture a short distance outside the city to find themselves in a sportsman’s paradise. The Sierra Nevada is Spain’s natural playground, offering rafting, kayaking, swimming, cycling and paragliding in the warmer months, and skiing and in the winter.
