The city of Granada is located in the autonomous community of Andalusia, in the province that gives it its name. Three of the predominant cultures in the history of Spain took place here: the Christian, the Muslim and the Jewish, and today vestiges of that time can be seen both in its monuments and on its facades and streets.

The Cathedral of Granada

The Cathedral of Granada began its construction in the 16th century as a Gothic-style project, but it evolved until it became a Renaissance temple. It is located in the Plaza de las Pasiegas and Juana La Loca, Felipe El Hermoso and the Catholic Monarchs are buried inside. Today it is the seat of the city’s archdiocese.

At the gates of its walls is the Generalife, a rural town made up of a set of buildings, gardens and patios with water and vegetation as the main protagonists. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.

They consisted of three rooms, the cold room, the warm room (which was the central and largest room) and the hot room, where the bathtubs were located. In 1918 they were declared a Site of Cultural Interest. They are located at Carrera del Darro 31 and admission is free.
