Granada is situated in the south of Spain in the Andalusia region and has an extremely rich culture and history to explore. As one of the last places to be occupied by the Moors in Spain, Granada still has a heavy, mid-century Muslim influence with the grand Alhambra palace and many other sights and points of interest around the city. It has been continuously inhabited for over 2500 years, and every settler has managed to leave their mark in some way.
