Visit with us the Monumental Granada, a place marked by history, which still preserves Hispanic-Muslim elements, but is surpassed by the grandeur of the Gothic and Renaissance periods.
The historic centre of the city of Granada is the meeting point for the rest of the neighbourhoods that make up the city. Its inhabitants began to found it in the 11th century, when it became the Arab commercial district of the city and, after the Reconquest of Granada in 1492, it was the place chosen by the first Christians to settle.
It is therefore a space that mixes two cultures, two histories, as it is not unusual to find next to an old shelter for merchants from the Arab period, or alhóndiga, historicist buildings of the nineteenth century.
The two great monuments built in the 16th century, as the center of the new life of the city, stand out as exceptional points of this visit:
the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel
The first of them, a mixture of styles and one of the tallest cathedrals in Europe. While the second becomes an indispensable point because it is the resting place of the remains of the Catholic Monarchs.
A jewel of Elizabethan Gothic.
