The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (or simply UNESCO) manages the World Heritage List, which contains 911 properties with outstanding universal value. As you’ll probably have never heard of most of these World Heritage Listings, Europeish highlights ten amazing properties from a different country every month. This month: Spanish World Heritage.

1. Alhambra (Grenada)

The Alhambra in Granada, in the south of Spain near the Sierra Nevada, is a large medieval palace, built by the former Moorish rulers of the region. This amazing site (it is one of the 7 European Wonders of the World) is home to a lot of Islamic art and architectural beauties. UNESCO has limited the amount of people that can visit the Alhambra every day, so booking your visit in advance is recommended.
