One of the coolest cities in Spain!!
I backpacked around Spain for 3 months….so it's safe to say I know this incredible country pretty well! If I wanted to live by a city that was far ish from the beach, it would DEFINITELY be in Granada!! Great food, cool people, amazing views and culture!
Insider Tip:It's a big backpacking city, which means some people (locals & foreigners) try to take advantage of you. It's not something to lose sleep over but make sure your travel smarts / street smarts are turned on. Make sure you visit the caves, of course La Alhambra and GO TO A LIVE FLAMENCO SHOW! Also, go to an arabic tea house. Granada was the last Moorish city before both the muslims and jews were banished in the 15th century by the Spanish conquistadores. Lots of amazing muslim & jewish culture to experience.
