The most artistic wealth of Granada is the Spanish-muslim art, in particular, the palace city of the Alhambra and the Generalife, the latter a pleasure palace with a romantic garden, remarkable both for its location and arrangement as for the diversity flowers, plants and fountains. The Alhambra is the culmination of the Nasrid art, work that was done in the 13th and 14th centuries, with most of it built at the time of Yusuf I and Mohammed V, between 1333 and 1354.

At present, the appearance of the city of Granada is typically bourgeois, with a lot of weight in the architecture of the 19th and numerous Renaissance and Baroque buildings.
