The awe-inspiring Alhambra Palace, Granada.

On holiday in Andalucia, Spain? There are some things not to be missed and one of these is the opportunity to see soul stirring flamenco dancing in one of Spain’s most amazing buildings, the Moorish Alhambra Palace in Granada. Flamenco is a southern Spanish tradition so all the more reason to enjoy a performance in the Generalife Gardens of the palace.

Local dancer and choreographer Eva Yerbabuena will be performing her new show until the 23rd of this month along with an impressive group of singers, guitarists and dancers who form her company. Call the Alhambra on +34 955 678 663 or visit www.evayerbabuena.com for more details.

The Alhambra palace and fortress complex was constructed on the hill to the south east of town during the mid 14th century by the Moorish rulers. With the expulsion of the Moors in 1492, parts of the Palace were used by Christian rulers and the Palace of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, was later inserted into the Alhambra, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Spain’s main tourist attractions.

Ryanair (www.ryanair.com) no longer flies to Granada but flies to the Andalucian city of Seville, and a number of budget airlines fly to Malaga.
