Granda majestically rises from a plain onto threes hills, surrounded by the Sierra Nevada. The Alhambra and the tomb of the Catholic Monarchs are the pride of Granada. A lesser-known building but definitely one to visit would be the Cartuja Monastery. Elaborate paintings will be everywhere you look.
