Granada 16th-century convent-turned-hotel with stunning Moorish architecture and modern amenities
Located on the site of a 12-century convent, the AC Palacio de Santa Paula shows an appreciation for its deep roots throughout. The 75 guestrooms and suites have sherbert orange accent walls and feature traditional stonework and dark wooden furnishings that nod to their Andalucian heritage, but also offer modern conveniences travelers expect such as air conditioning, room service and hardwood floors. The central cloister, which is part of the original Santa Paula convent, is the hotel’s central showpiece and the perfect spot for a summer drink or afternoon concert.
In the Area
The property is conveniently located nearby the breathtaking World Heritage Site, Alhambra, a sprawling fortress and palace dating to the 9th century and renowned for its Moorish architecture. Fortunately for history obsessives, in Grenada, a visit to the Alhambra is merely scratching the surface; the city is laden with historical buildings that pay homage to its rich past as a cultural crossroads. Take in the Albayzin (the Moorish old town), listen to live guitar music along the Carrera del Darro and mingle with locals in the evenings or visit the cathedral and royal chapel.
