The best option to get to know the city is to combine Albaycin with the historic center.

A walk to the city center is peaceful and comfortable. After the Alhambra it’s the icing on the cake.

There are several very interesting historical monuments.


The Royal Chapel, The Cathedral, the Madraza, the Bañuelo, the Alhóndiga, Corral del Carbon, Plaza Bibrambla, and several churches. Let us suggest an itinerary according to your needs.


At the foot of the Alhambra and the Albaycin, on the plain of La Vega de Granada, is the place chosen by Queen Isabella of Castile and King Ferdinand of Aragon as a burial place: THE ROYAL CHAPEL.



Emperor Charles V will build THE CATHEDRAL of Granada and the university.





After the conquest of Granada by the Catholic kings, the city was transformed and extended towards the valley. Opposite the Islamic University MADRAZA YOUSSOUFIYYA, Isabel the Catholic decided to build her mausoleum, where the Catholic kings are currently buried, in addition to her daughter Jeanne and her husband Philippe “Le beaux”.




In the 16th century, Charles V decided to demolish part of the great silk market (the largest in Europe), The Alcayceria, to build one of the largest cathedrals in the world. There are still some preserved remains of this great market, buildings witnessing a great commercial movement and the economic importance of Granada right after the conquest. They are the “hotels” Corral del Carbón, The « Alhóndigas ».



In addition, there are still other churches and monasteries that stand out for their artistic importance, usually not included in tourist visits, due to the large quantity and diversity of monuments that Granada has:

The monastery and hospital of Saint John of Gods, founded by the Saint.
The monastery of Saint Jerome, constructed as the mausoleum of Grand Captain Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordoba, the architect of the conquest of Grenade.

La Chartreuse (chartreuse monastery), a Baroque building that is the most beautiful in Spain.
