Come to Granada
Boabdil was the last Moor to have ruled over Granada. In 1492, the Catholic Monarchs, Isabel and Fernando, after becoming masters of Granada condemned him to exile. Upon his departure, he turned one last time to contemplate his abandoned city and began to cry. His mother told him: "Weep like a woman that you could not defend like a man."
Come to Granada and you will understand the reaction of Boabdil.
Apart from his very interesting history and most visited site in Spain - the Alhambra - Granada is also a modern city famous for its great atmosphere, its numerous tapas bars and its people who are very hospitable. The advantage of Granada is that the city lies at the foot of the Sierra Nevada and just 45 minutes from the Costa Tropical so you can enjoy the beaches and the ski slopes, outdoor cafes and a good number of clubs.

Things to Do in Granada:
The origin of the Arab city of Grenada is still reflected today through its palaces, streets, markets and tea! Granada is filled with "Tetería" or tea bars, where you can taste many kinds of Arab teas.
Eat good tapas!
Even if "el tapas" is a national passion, Grenada remains one of the few Spanish cities where you automatically are served tapas when you order something to drink. So, order a beer, a glass of wine, or even a soda and eat olives, ham, cheese or toast!
