Monuments in Historical Centre
The monumentality of the Catholic Monarchs' favourite city is felt in impressive monuments like the Cathedral, a symbol of Granada's Christianity and an excellent place to start a stroll through the heart of the city. The Royal Chapel, the Monarch's mausoleum, is nearby, and, a little further on, the Monastery of San Jerónimo, an outstanding jewel of the Renaissance.
The centre of Granada is a lively area with streets full of shops and many tapas bars. The main features are the Alcaicería, an old silk market, and plaza Bib-Rambla, where flower kiosks fill the air with fresh bright colours year round.
