Anniversaries and milestones crop up all the time when you work with as diverse a range of destinations as we do, but one in particular caught our eye this week. According to UNESCO, 2012-2013 sees the 1,000th anniversary of the official founding of Granada in Andalucia. This beautiful city has played a pivotal role in some of the most crucial events in Spanish history, from being a centre point of Al-Andalus to the last city to fall during the Reconquista by Ferdinand and Isabela.
Today, it’s probably most famous for the stunning Alhambra Palace, a remarkable legacy of the Moorish past, as well as the intricate Albaicin neighbourhood and the impressive cathedral. You can explore this charming and historically rich city on our holidays to Andalucia.
