Learning Task #4: Tourist Attraction

Loss of tourism seems a major concern in this problem. You need to investigate the Alhambra as a tourist attraction. What attracts people to the Alhambra? How many people visit it each day (or week, month, year)? When is the tourist season, or do people come all year long? What is the charge for visiting the palace? What are the economic benefits of tourism in and around Granada? What is the benefit to the country of Spain?

Develop a chart summarizing the economic value of tourism in Granada as a result of the Alhambra's location there.
