"High on my list of places to..." Spain Things to Do Tip by Araneida

Spain Things to Do: 1,013 reviews and 1,618 photos


High on my list of places to see in Spain was La Alhambra in Granada, one of the best preserved Arabic palaces in Spain. The Arabic architecture is very elaborate and skilled, and the structure often gave me the impression of a few well placed columns holding up and impossibly large wall. The open, airy effect this creates is ideally suited to the warmer climate of southern Spain (and, I imagine, the homeland of the Moors who introduced it). The arabesque touch is one of my favorite aspects of Spain because it creates a delightful combination of east and west.

Directions: Granada. Maps are easily available at the tourist center.
