Granada is the archetypal southern Spanish town -- a place not to be missed. This first afternoon we will visit two of the most impressive edifices ever built -- the hilltop fortress of The Alcazaba, and the gigantic palace complex of the Alhambra, which was the last refuge of the Moors in Spain. The Alhambra embraces hundreds of years of architectural history that includes private dwellings still occupied today. It also includes several churches, a restaurant, gardens, statues and fountains, and the centerpiece 16th-century Renaissance palace. All this overwhelming opulence makes an unforgettable impression, among a honeycomb of palatial interiors, covered passageways, obscure alleys, and several dozen elegant courtyards scattered throughout the Casa Real. This is one of Europes top sights!
