Parador de Granada

Official star rating:
There are 93 paradors in Spain, but this is the most requested of them all. Located on the grounds of the Alhambra, it occupies a late 15th-century monastery built by Granada’s conquerors, Ferdinand and Isabella, built over a Nasrid palace.
The parador is chock-full of original features: the cloister-patio, pebble courtyards, arches, dark wood and iron work, beams and rose-tinted bricks, and there’s even one room from the lost palace.
Guests are free to wander the grounds of the Alhambra after dark, especially romantic on a moonlit or starry night.
The friendly professional staff, great breakfast and wonderful views all contribute to a pricy but unforgettable way to experience Granada and its ineffably beautiful star attraction.
