Granada: During our lengthy stay in the cultural capital of southern Spain, you may visit the Archaeological Museum, the Arab Baths, and the Alhambra Museum. We will make a special visit to the Alhambra. The last stronghold of Moorish Spain, the Alhambra is a remarkable creation of ornate design. The detailed ***lacework*** carved in the stucco walls is exquisite. The lavish fountains and lush gardens of the Generalife fragrance the air with delight. Monuments, such as the Patio of the Lions, the Hall of the Two Sisters, and Sala de la Barca are visually enthralling. Another must-see is the Cathedral of Granada, which is home to the Royal Chapel, where the remains of Fernando and Isabel are interred. Across from the Alhambra, on the other side of the Darro River lies the Albaicín. Here, clusters of traditional houses are spread across the hills demonstrating the characteristic atmosphere of this charming region.
