Rising above the modern lower town, the Alhambra and the Albaycín, situated on two adjacent hills, form the medieval part of Granada. With palaces and gardens to explore and towers to climb this can be a fascinating place for kids to while away a few hours. Children under 12 can enter for free. The key is to take the whole experience at their speed and don’t expect to cover everything.
