Introduction

Granada, once "Granada of the Jews", site of Samuel La Nagidīs Talmudic Academy. Visit the palace of Alhambra and itīs Generalife Gardens. It was here in 1492 that the decree expelling the Jew from Spain was signed.

 Atop a hill overlooking Granada, in southern Spain, is the majestic and stunning Alhambra. Both fortress and palace, it has been home to kings and vagabonds. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is an awe inspiring blend of Moorish and Christian architecture and design.

In the Generalife there is no kind of decorative excess or points of interest in its architecture. Unlike the Alhambra, all the buildings of the Generalife are quite solid, but in general poor and simple. This indicates an intimate and peaceful atmosphere that the kings were looking for when they retired to these gardens to rest. There are only some decorative motifs of plasterwork, which are not very varied, but are exquisitely fine and tasteful.

The Albaycin is an spectacular Old District in the hadow of the Alhambra. The Albaycin is the old Arab Quarter. It comprises approximately the area between the hill of the Alhambra, the hill of San Cristobal, the Sacromonte and Elvira.
