Granada boasts numerous well-preserved examples of exquisite Moorish architecture, not the least of which is the Alhambra, an ancient citadel and royal palace.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Alhambra and Mirador de San Nicolas. Step out of the city life by going to Fundación Cueva de Nerja and Cliffs of Maro Cerro Gordo. When in Granada, make a side trip to see Nerja Donkey Sanctuary in Nerja, approximately Nerja away. There's still lots to do: have some family-friendly fun at El Reino Escape Room, take in the spiritual surroundings of Royal Chapel of Granada, and admire the natural beauty at Generalife.

Make your Granada itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
