Images Of Granada

Nestled close to the towering Sierra Nevada, and overlooked by the Alhambra, one of the world's most famous Moorish palaces, Granada in the Spanish region of Andalucia is unique in comparison to other Spanish cities. Sure, it has its tapas bars and locals enjoy their siestas every afternoon, but stroll around the city and you'll find Moorish quarters with an abundance of tea houses and restaurants where Arabic delicacies are their specialty. It is also a big student city, so whether you arrive in the middle or at the end of the week you'll find somewhere to suit your hedonistic needs.

    Granada, August 2015

    Granada's a lovely city. Stayed there much longer than I expected. Also a good basecamp for day trips. Not too expensive as well :)

    Insider Tip:There's an awesome place to hike in Monachil (take bus 183; about 1,50 euro). It makes for a refreshing day trip. Around 20.00 o'clock there's outdoor flamenco next to the cathedral every night (or at least in the summer).

    Incredible city

    This isn't a silver platter sort of city, if you want to see some amazing things you need to be willing to come here and look for it. But it's just incredible. The Alhambra is breathtaking, as are the streets and neighbourhoods that surround it. Closely there are mountains and caves to explore, suspension bridges and waterfalls. Inside the city it's this amazing mix of cultures dating back centuries. This city has everything you could want or need.

    Insider Tip:Delve deeper into the city by researching the history of the town. And if you're travelling in summer, be prepared for it to be hot!

    Loved it

    Loved all the views of mountains from most streets. The Alhambra is well worth visiting, among other various churches and cathedrals you can stumble upon. Very nice shops to buy lots of souvenirs. Very easy to navigate albeit tiring due to big/steep hills. It is very hot though!

    Insider Tip:Go to the sunset at one of the 'miradors', amazing view of the city, lovely lively atmosphere!
