Granada


15 Granada is, so far, the most beautiful and interesting city I have visited in Spain.

Unfortunately I spent only 2 (half) days there and the weather wasn’t good at my arrival day, which means I’ll have to visit again this beautiful city.

‘La Alhambra’ (a fortress/palace in arabic style) is certainly its symbol (during peak season it’s better to book your ticket).

However the city has many other interesting  that can be visited for free (there is a very good daily free walking tour), especially in Albayzín (UNESCO site), the ancient Muslim neighborhood, nowadays very popular with visitors:

1 Old palaces with patio

2 Hamman El Bañuelo, ruins of perhaps the most well-preserved Arabic bath house in Spain

17 Carrera del Darro

7 Sacromonte, a gypsy (Roma) district situated east of the Albazin, it’s noted for its many cave where now artists and alternative people live.

6The district is also famous for its flamenco shows popular with tourists and the amazing views of the Alhambra.

5 Drink tap water, probably the best in spain, coming from the nearest mountains of Sierra Nevada

10 When you visit Granda enjoy the last place where you can get a ‘tapas’ for each drink you have!
