Infused with Moorish culture, this sun-soaked Andalusian city has a glamorously exotic air. It’s dominated by the sienna-walled Alhambra fortress, which overlooks a rabbit warren of medieval alleyways and pedestrianised streets packed with colourful market stalls. Granada’s architectural charm, lively flamenco bars and mouth-watering tapas invariably seduce visitors. If you do get tired of city life, though, then the pristine peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the glorious sandy beaches of Nerja are just a short drive away.
