Ten minutes walking from Alhambra Palace Hotel…

The Nazrid palaces and centennial gardens of the Alhambra in Granada are this Festival’s most impressive sign of identity and a unique setting for its performances. At the beginning of summer hundreds of spectators enjoy the music and the dance, infused by the aroma of the lush vegetation of the gardens of the Alhambra and under the impact of the amazing Nazrid, renaissance and romantic architecture which has made of Granada the so-called Gateway to the South.

And side-by-side with the performances that take place in the Alhambra there is a broad mosaic of artistic events which extends throughout Granada and its province and is available for public enjoyment: this is the FEX which represents the extension of the Festival throughout the city and the province of Granada. The most spectacularly monumental sights of the city (the Cathedral, the Royal Chapel, the Monastery of San Jeronimo, the Sacromonte Abbey, the Carthusian Monastery, the Royal Chancellery, the Casa de Castril, the Casa de los Tiros and the churches), together with the contemporary buildings, the many squares and street corners make the Festival a popular event enjoyed by thousands; audience numbers are increased by visitors and tourists who come to Granada specially for the Festival. And Granada is not only the city but also the province. The province includes more than ten municipalities which every year make a contribution to this cultural fiesta with programmes which are also offered in the most suitable and unique venues.
