Granada City


Granada is a city located in southeastern Spain, within the region of Andalusia, has approximately 900,000 inhabitants between the city and its metropolitan area and received more than five million visitors in 2019. In its historic centre is the complex of palaces, gardens and fortress known as the Alhambra, which is one of the ten most visited monuments in the world and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

The Albaicín neighbourhood, from which the red fortress can be seen, was also declared a World Heritage Site in 1984 and within it we find the intervention area of the In the City project in this city. Within the area of the old city that we know today as the Albaicin is what was Alcazaba Qadima (Old), the origins of the city of Granada as we know it today. It is the founding area of the capital of the Zirid Taifa kingdom in the 11th century, after the Caliphate of Cordoba broke up.

Within this area, near the towers and the wall of the Alcazaba Qadima built in the 11th century will be the main nucleus of our project in Granada.
