Instead of going on and on about how amazing Granada is, I thought it would be better to show you and tell you in pictures how amazing this historical city in the Andalusian region is. So without further adieu, here is why you should visit Granada now!
Because it looks like this!
Where little streams run alongside cobblestone streets…
…and trees are orange and skies a brilliant blue.
Because you can sit by fountains under vine-covered patios…
…while enjoying an assortment of tapas.
And it’s home to the Alhambra that looks like this…
…with ceilings that are magnificent masterpieces like this.
Because you can stumble on graffiti that looks like this…
…before transporting yourself to India at a little hookah bar.
All before ending the day watching the sun sink behind the Alhambra.
There you have it. In photos, why you should visit Granada now. It is an incredible beautiful city with so much to see and do. Here is a little info to get you ready for your trip:
Helpful Travel Tips
- STAY: NH Collection Granada Victoria. Conveniently located in the center of it all. Walking distance to all the major attractions, restaurants, bar and more.
- EAT: Bar Los Diamantes. A seafood lovers paradise. This place gets packed at lunchtime and then again for dinner. If you don’t want to wait, try going around 2pm.
- DRINK: La Tana. Great little wine bar with just a few seats. Tapas are served complimentary with drinks.
- GET THERE: By Plane: Granada has a small airport situated 12km west of the city serving a limited number of flights but for budget airlines you’re much better off flying into nearby Malaga. By Bus: Regular buses run from Seville, Málaga, Madrid and Cordoba as well as a few direct services to the port of Algeciras. By Train: Three trains run each day on the line to Algeciras via Antequera and Ronda. Granada is also on a stop on a line between Almeria and Seville, with four trains daily. By Car: I drove to Granada from Malaga. It takes rough three to four hours and is a pretty desolate drive so be sure to stock up on any snacks!
