It is organised on five hills. The most important two are the Albaicin, which was originally desgned following the Islamic urban system, and the Palatine city of the Alhambra. Nowadays, Granada is one of the most important cultural and heritage enclaves of Andalusia. It is a city where the historic architecture makes a perfect combination with the contemporary one.
