Granada

by Emily Benjamin

This may be my largest set to date! Despite Granada being the most popular city in Spain for tourists, more so than Barcelona, Madrid and even Ibiza, neither Jamie Talbot or I managed to do any research for our trip here. All we knew was that it was famous for the Alhambra, a towering fortress, castle and palace, perched on top of a hill in the centre of town. With tickets purchased for the 8.30am time slot (they have to do this to control visitor numbers) we trekked up the hill and explored the grounds, taking almost 5 hours to absorb everything there was to see. We also took ourselves on a walking tour of Granada, and on Wednesday night we found ourselves at Plaza San Nicolas, sipping cerveza and watching the sun set on the Alhambra across from us. In the four days we had in Granada, I took so many photos that I couldn’t help but include all my favourites here. There are a lot to get through, but there was a lot to see in Granada! Enjoy :)
