Granada is found in the south of Spain in the region of Andalucia. Though it was founded by the Romans, the city received its name from the Muslim Moors who ruled from the 8th century up until the Catholic Reconquest in 1492.

Perched high on a hill in the east of the city, the Alhambra, Granada's most famous monument, incorporates the palaces of the Moorish emirs. The 16th-century cathedral reflects the city's Catholic history. Today, Granada is also a large university town.
