Granada is a city in southern Spain. It is the capital of Granada Province in the Andalusia Autonomous Community. The city covers 88 sq km (34 sq mi) and has a population of 240,000 (2011 estimate). It is the 13th largest city in 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. It is about an hour from the Mediterranean coast, but as it is 738 meters above sea level, it enjoys a slightly cooler climate.

Perhaps the most famous sight in the city is the Moorish citadel of the Alhambra, today a World Heritage Site.

Granada is a city with lots to see and explore. I would recommend that you spend at least two days here.
