GRANADA’S world famous Alhambra palace was the most visited tourist site in Spain last year. More than 2.4 million people visited the spectacular Moorish palace during 2014, a record number in the history of the Alhambra.
According to a study carried out by the famous tourist attraction, the busiest day for visitors last year was on May 1 – a Bank Holiday in Spain – with a total of 9,329 people coming to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and even in the traditionally quiet months of January and February, visitor numbers were up by 20 per cent.
Originally built as a small fortress in 889, it was expanded by the Moors in the 13th and 14th centuries into the vast, palace complex it is today.
