Some of the specialized routes in Muslim Spain, such as the Route of the Gardens, the Albaicin Route and the Route of the Cisterns, offer a tour of places of extraordinary beauty and superb construction, such as the Chapiz House, the Zafra House, the Palace of the Forgotten, the Moorish House of the Golden Horn, the Generalife Gardens, the Aljibe del Rey and La Chumbera, among many others.

The Mudejar Art Route runs through imposing buildings representative of this unique architectural style, such as the minaret next to the Church of St. Joseph, the Madraza Palace, the Church of St. Anne and the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul.

The Federico Garcia Lorca Route is one of the most special because it offers a tour of the places where the immortal republican poet lived in Granada, such as the Huerta de San Vicente, Campillo Square, the Faculty of Law, the Venenoso Palace and Castillejos Square.

Like other Spanish cities, Granada is an ideal location for film sets. That is why the Granada Cinema Route offers a walk through places that have served as film locations, such as the Alhambra, New Square or the Realejo.
