The Alhambra is a palace, citadel, fortress, and former home of the Nasrid sultans, located in the mid-sized city of Granada in southern Spain.

As the last Moorish stronghold in Europe, the Alhambra reflects the peak of its civilization in Andalusia with splendid ornamental architecture, lush gardens with cascading and dripping water features, and breathtaking views of the city.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in combination with two other places in Granada with strong Moorish influence: Generalife and Albayzín,

Granada itself is rich in history and culture, in a scenic part of the country, making it one of the top travel destinations in the country.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
