Visit with us the Monumental Granada, a place marked by history, which continues to preserve Hispanic-Muslim elements, but which is surpassed by the greatness of the Gothic and Renaissance
The historic center of the city of Granada is the meeting point for the rest of the city's neighbourhoods. Its inhabitants began founding it in the 11th century, at which point 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, since it is not strange to find historicist buildings from the 19th century next to an old refuge for merchants from the Arab period, or alhóndiga.
The two great monuments erected 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, it becomes an essential point for being the place where the remains of the Catholic Monarchs rest.
A jewel of Elizabethan Gothic.
