La Herradura is the second largest urban area of Almuñécar, on the Costa Tropical coast of Granada. It is outstanding for its stunning bay, washed by the waters of the Mediterranean, which has become a favourite spot for water sports, including scuba diving. The beach is set between two mountains, and is thus well sheltered from winds. Besides marine flora and fauna of great ecological value, its beds are home to the remains of 25 Spanish galleons that were wrecked in a storm on 19th October 1562.
The Almuñécar-La Herradura Underwater Reserve was created to preserve these marine resources. Its aim is to make this part of the Andalucian coast an international point of reference for scuba enthusiasts, and to create a unique area in Spain with artificial reefs simulating sunken galleons, amphora factories and practice areas.
The Alhambra is a complex surrounded by ramparts located on the al-Sabika hill, which dominates the valley and city of Granada and faces the popular, picturesque quarter of the Albaicin. You can see the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada from here. Its most famous buildings are the Moorish palace which makes the reputation of the Alhambra, Charles V’s Renacentist palace and a church built on the site of a mosque.
Granada is a mecca for culture and tourists. It is home to the famous Alhambra palace (part of the World Heritage list created by UNESCO). Its historical centre is divided into four old towns: Albaicin of Moorish origin and UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994, Realejo-San Matías of Jewish origin, Sacromonte which is just beyond the walls of Albaicin and whose inhabitants and origins are gypsy, and the Centro Sagario of Christian origin which stretches below the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel (where Catholic kings have been laid to rest).
The city attracts tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world each year. Granada is a unique place, at the crossroads of different cultures, a place where many different civilisations live together and where blood has sometimes been shed, and that has inherited many traditions.
