Travel in the city is easy, you seem to be able to get anywhere for one euro. It is under an hour from the Mediterrean coast, the Costa Tropical. The Alhambra palace, a Moorish citadel , is at the heart of Granada Town on the river Darro.
It is one of the most famous items of the Islamic historical legacy that makes Granada a hot spot among cultural and tourist cities in Spain.
The city is a the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains with peaks as high as 3,478.6 metres (11,413 ft).
