granada

Here is my best explanation:

'city' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'greece advanced spanish nothing' is the wordplay.
'greece' becomes 'gr' (abbreviation).
'advanced' becomes 'a'.
'spanish nothing' becomes 'nada' ('nothing' in Spanish).
'gr'+'a'+'nada'='GRANADA'

'for their' is the link.
I am not very happy about this link. Some or all of it may be part of another bit of the clue.
