|Information about the neighborhood and city (video)||Granada is the capital city of the province of Granada, in the au-tonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. Granada is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, at the confluence of four rivers, and only one hour by car from the Mediterra-nean coast, the Costa Tropical. |
The city has a vast history. It was first settled by Iberians, Ro-mans, and Visigoths. The current settlement became a major city of Al-Andalus in the 11th century. In the 13th century it be-came the capital of the Emirate of Granada under Nasrid rule until 1492, when it was conquered by the Catholic Mon-archs and progressively transformed into a Christian city over the course of the 16th century. The Alhambra, a medieval Nasrid citadel and palace, is located in Granada. It is one of the most famous monuments of Islamic architecture and one of the most visited tourist sites in Spain. Islamic-period influence and Moorish architecture are also pre-served in the Albaicín neighborhood and other medieval monu-ments in the city. The 16th century also saw a flourishing of other important artistic styles.
The city of Granada has a significant number of parks and gar-dens, including: Federico García Lorca Park, Gardens of Pa-seo del Salón and of La Bomba, Gardens of the Triumph, …
The University of Granada has an estimated 47,000 undergrad-uate students spread over five different campuses in the city. The university has become internationally recognised in many university fields: teaching, research, cultural and services to its members and its surroundings. It is therefore one of the destina-tions that receives more exchange students from the Erasmus+ Programmes.
In Granada there is a wide program of leisure and entertain-ment, which covers a large number of fields, available to both visitors and citizens themselves.
In a nutshell, Granada is a lively interesting city, full of history, monuments and wonderful places and landmarks to visit and enjoy.
