Home of the world-famous Alhambra
At the feet of the incredible Alhambra is the Realejo – the city's old Jewish Quarter, or judería.
Typical Andalusian architecture: beautiful and ancient.
Whitewashed buildings and high-walled courtyards.
Dominated by the Alhambra and the Generalife.
But, there is still plenty to do and see in the rest of Realejo.
Even if it's something as simple as relaxing in the sun by the river.
What can I do here?
Famous across the world and foremost in Realejo is La Alhambra. This stunning Moorish palace and fortress is what Granada is best known for.
Besides the palace, other buildings, and gardens surround and fill the complex.
Spend a day here, strolling through the courtyards to a soundtrack of tinkling fountains.
Admire the intricate Islamic architecture. Imagine stepping back in time.
Explore the exotic Generalife gardens, the heat pricking your skin as you gaze at the snowy Sierra Nevada.
It dates back to the construction of a small fortress on the site in 889 on the ruins of an old Roman building.
By 1333 it had become palatial, the home of Yusef I, Sultan of Granada.
Since Christian annexation of the Caliphate of Granada in 1492, it has survived alterations, additions, neglect, and destruction. And still it endures.
