The Alhambra

This is one of the most obvious must-sees because the outline of this impressive structure dominates the city. This 9th-century castle is utterly magical and consists of a seemingly endless stretch of buildings and gardens. It is possible to visit the Alhambra at night, which is particularly impressive and definitely worth the effort.
