If you have not so many days,...
If you have not so many days, I would recommend to accommodate in Albaycin'District. Granada is actually a standard city and though it´s quite charming, the most beautiful places are in the oldest district, where you can feel as if you were in another age.
In order, I think you absolutely must visit:
- Alhambra and Generalife(1.000 pts for adults and free for children under 8).Al-hamrá, which means 'the red one', by the mountain where it is placed, is one of the most ancient arab palaces left in the world. It has an extraordinary sense of luxury, and harmony and although it´s not as well maintained as some other monuments in Andalucía (as Alcázar in Sevilla), its charming is still in the air.It´s divided into 3 parts:1. The Alcazaba, gorgeos militar fortress, from IX century. In XIII cent. Mohammed III made of the watchtower his own residence.
2. Alhamrá Palaces, the Mexuar (Justice room); Comares Palace (masterpiece with a profuse and extraordinary decoration, it has an administrative room, being the rest of it the real residence of Mohammad V, standing out the Myrtle courtyard for its beauty and freshness as long as there is a fountain in the middle and is surrounded by strong marble columns); Mohammad V Palace, as real residence being the most magnificent of the whole; Mozarabes Room; Abencerrajes Room; Kings Room, and the Two Sisters Room.
3. Generalife Gardens. Exhuberant, adjoining the Alhamrá, full of plants and beautiful strange flowers, lots of small pools with quiet fountains, the ground made of small stones making the shape of flowers according to the difference of colors between them. In the summer, they are like water, so refreshing under the relentless sun. Taking relaxing walks through the streets in Albaicyn district, visiting the variouos museums, the walls in ruins of its ancient Alcazaba, Arab baths, Dar Al-Horra Palace, etc
