We have just had three fantastic days in Granada. What a fabulous place! We had brilliant views of the snow capped Sierra Nevada from our hotel balcony. The Alhambra was amazing. We have taken loads of photos and no doubt Andy will put some more up on the blog soon. The palaces, the architecture, the views of Andalucia and the gardens were just brilliant. We really recommend this city!
In the evenings we watched a flamenco show, strolled around the Albaicin area, had a Moroccan supper and did a lot of people watching!
It was a long drive down to Granada and of course we had to race back on Sunday in order to watch the England v Wales game at our local Ole Bar. England won, so all in all it was a perfect weekend break.
Great!, looks like you got there at the right time of year, when we visited it was pretty full of people, I think it was June; high season. Great to see the mountains with snow in the distance too. Grenada is quite a drive from where you are no? If you liked Grenada, you would problably like Rhonda. Plan than for. A day trip and sure to have a paella in the restaurant on the gorge. Have you thought of cordoba? Bit further away…. We never got there.
