Granada lies in the foothills of Spain's Sierra Nevada mountains. Many visitors to Spain believe that if there is only one place to visit then it should be Granada.
The city has a population of 240,000 of which 80,000 are students so there is a vibrant atmosphere about the place.

Apart from the University there is only one other major employer, the Alhambra Palace, which attracts over two million annual visitors and is key to a thriving tourism industry.
The Alhambra has been described as 'the Jewel of Moorish Spain' and visitors will be overwhelmed by its beauty.
First time visitors to Granada are surprised (and delighted) to find that the tapas culture thrives in this city.
