Twentieth-century Spanish historian Américo Castro called Granada the birthplace of Spanish culture. For years Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in peace and coexistence here under Muslim rule. Today Granada is laced with remnants of the former capital of the Muslim Empire: the small, winding streets of the old Arab Quarter, the Albaicín, active commerce in the modern part of the city, and of course the town's highlight: the Alhambra, the former Muslim Palace that now draws visitors from all around the world to soak in the architecture history and culture of what once was.
Granada is very much authentically what people think of when they think of Spain: tapas, flamenco, nightlife, religion and history.
