    Favorite places to visit in Granada?

    Hello eveyone! This question is directed to people who have been in granada I'd like to go to Spain next year, but first I'd like to get some insider info from people who have actually been there, specifically granada. I've heard this place is full of interesting buildings (specially interesting for me because I'm an amateur photographer), like for example mosques and synagogues. I'm specially interested in visiting the old synagogues there. My family came to america from this place, and I think this is a trip I should never miss.

    What other fun activities/interesting places would you recommend me to visit while I'm in Granada.

    Well, the Alhambra of course. You should set a day (or the better part of a day, anyway) to visit that. Make sure to get tickets in advance, since it will often sell out on the day itself. One or two days ahead should be fine, though.

    The Cathedral, which is where the Catholic Kings are buried. It is a beautiful building beyond that anyway, in the traditional Spanish cathedral style.

    The neighbourhood of Albaycin, gorgeous mix of Andalusian white town and moorish roots. There's also a nice church which was build on a mosque and still has areas that show that origin quite nicely. This district also includes the first new mosque build since the reconquista, though I haven't seen it so I don't know how photogenic it is.

    And finally you should go for tapas. It's the best way to see the regular day-to-day city.

You seem to know a lot things about Spain I love seafood, fish, beef, chicken... but not pork. I love chinese food restaurants as well, do you know of a good one over there? Preferably a chinese food buffet. Thanks in advance!!

    The Alhambra is an absolute must and the town of Granada, but make sure its not on a Sunday as everything is closed then. The Alpujarras in the Sierra Nevada, which are a series of facinating mountain villages are absolutely gorgeous and well worth the visit. You can go to the beach at Salaborena. Have lunch on the beach at one of the very affordable and amazing restaurants. I loved it! Try the sardines on a skewer or fresh octopus or prawns and a patatas fritas.

    Granada is the city and the capital of the province of Granada. Before a couple of months my has been visited there after vegas to grand canyon tours. The weather in November is average. I believe that is the best time to go there. According to your requirement I want to share some famous historical building to visit there. I hope it will be helpful for you.

    daren, according to my point of view November is not a perfect season to visit this region. Spring is a best season to go there. It is a alluring time of the year. During this time period the temperatures begin to rise and the sunny weather starts to attract tourists. Spring is particularly exciting and memorable time with leaves bursting and flowers blooming.

    Alhambra is my favorite place to visit in Granada. It is an exclusive palace and fortress complex that is a unique piece of Moorish art. As well as it is one of the best architectural sights in all over the Europe.

    Leif, It is a nice place for history lovers. This palace is located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. The inner decoration of the palace is the symbol of remains of Moorish dominion within Spain and ushered in the last great period of Andalusian art in Granada. All the stylistic elements had been used during the construction of Granada that was created and developed during eight centuries of Muslim rule in the Peninsula.
    I have plan to enjoy a west coast tour usa in coming month with my family.

    Trellum! It's really nice see that you are going to such an amazing place. I have not been to Granada but cousins had been to a beautiful city, and told me so much about the place. They said that Granada is a beautiful place to visit and the Alhambra, Sierra Nevada, Granada Cathedral and Generalife are must see places in Granada. A lot of things to do in banff national park.

    Travel into Spain's Moorish and Christian. Travel into Spain's Moorish and Christian history with every step you take in compact, walkable Granada. The famous Alhambra fortress is a required visit, as are the Alcaiceria (marketplace), the Cathedral and too many architectural sites to name. Wander through Granada's fascinating Moorish old quarter, the labyrinthine Albaicin; then plan to head out again by night, because the nightlife here is particularly lively.

    Museum of Alhambra
    This is a must-see place! Alhambra is absolutely gorgeous with a stunning view, beautiful architecture, and spectacular gardens. Skipping this landmark would be a shame! Pictures definitely don't do it justice.
