Rich and Colourful History

The history of the region is every bit as rich and colourful as its natural features. It was here, in Granada, that Christopher Columbus persuaded queen Isabel to finance his expedition to the Indies, which of course led to the discovery of America. And it was here that the two opposing forces of Christianity and Islam – East and West – had their final confrontation, in which Granada became the last independent Muslim city on the Iberian Peninsula.
The Iberio-Celts, the Moors, the Visigoths, the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks and the Romans all had control of Granada at different periods in the area’s history, and each of these occupiers had an influence on the culture, the literature, the music, the art, the food, the architecture and many other aspects of Andalusian life and society. For visitors who know something of the region’s rich and varied history, therefore, there are interesting things to be seen in almost every direction one looks, and every landmark tells its own fascinating story.
For visitors with only a short time to explore Granada, we offer the following sightseeing and “things to do” suggestions.
