Granada is the capital city of the province of Granada in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. Granada is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at the confluence of three rivers: the Beiro, the Darro and the Genil. The city sits at 738 meters above sea level, yet is only one hour from the Mediterranean coast.
Granada is home to The Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace. It is the most renowned building of the Andalusian Islamic historical legacy that makes Granada and its many cultural attractions a popular tourist destination in Spain. The Almohad influence on architecture is preserved in the area of the city called the Albaicín, with its fine examples of Moorish and Morisco construction.
