10 January, 2024

Musement has compiled a ranking of the 50 most popular attractions in Europe. Among the most visited is The Alhambra in Granada, a monumental complex known for its beauty and for what it represents on a cultural level in the city. Its Nasrid Palaces, the gardens of the Generalife, the Alcazaba or the Palace of Charles V are constantly visited throughout the year.

From the origin and meaning of the term that gives the castle its name, the use of different buildings and constructions that can be found both inside and outside such as the Puerta de la Justicia, the Palacio Cristiano built after the Reconquista or the use of the Alcazaba, making it more like a fortress than a palace, everything has a certain magic about it.

The water, the architecture or the decoration of all the chambers of the Nasrid Palaces are also part of the secrets that the Alhambra holds and that can be revealed by visiting this important monument declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. The Alhambra is ranked 35th in the ranking.
