Alhambra

This hotel is only a minute's drive from Alhambra. Here, there is a dome that is the culmination of Nasrid architecture, which shows a symbol that has little or nothing to do with the rulers of the Alhambra. It's worth checking out and learning what it is.

If something dominates Granada, it's the Alhambra, but if something dominates Realejo-San Matias, it's the famous Alhambra Palace Hotel. Its promoter, the Duke of Galatino, played a pivotal role in promoting tourism in Granada and Sierra Nevada. Did you know that the architecture of this place was inspired by the Sevillian tower of Torre del Oro?
