City of great sights and amazing variety from Islamic monuments of the Alhambra to Baroque splendor of churches and monasteries. Great walking in the old city and Albaicin, the quarter of whitewashed houses on a hilltop. Excellent views of the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background. Serious hiking and a 3000+ meter summit can be done, even as a day trip. Great food at nicely decorated restaurants, food and accommodation at very affordable prices.
