Manuel de Falla, romantic composer born in Cadiz and with the heart in Granada, was one of the most important in the first half of S. XX. Together with Isaac Albeniz and Enrique Granados, made our land a source of inspiration. The result of it would be the masterpiece "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", premiered in Paris on January 4, 1920.

To Manuel de Falla Foundation you can access walking by the road to the entrance to the Alhambra (15-20 minutes from Plaza Nueva) crossing by foot the dense forest of English elms brought by the Duke of Wellington in 1812.

And if you want the essence of flamenco, perhaps luck is with you and you can enjoy a night with "duende" in any of the shows or caves of the Sacromonte. Yes, not forgetting to drop by the club Camborio, one of the most original clubs ever visited, with a room where you can dance or have a drink while watching the Alhambra.

Gaze as the walls of the Alhambra change colour at sunset, with a magnificent sunset at the Mirador de San Nicolas. How magical is the Alhambra at night with full moon? Remember to visit it at night and "Tales of the Alhambra" by Washington Irving and “The Thousand and One Nights” will come to your mind.

Last but not least, enjoy Prokofiev´s Nutcracker Ballet or Tchaikosvsky Piano Concerto nº 1 conducted by Lorin Mazel at night at the Alhambra Gardens during Granada´s Music & Dance Summer Festival.
