Granada The Alhambra and the Generalife The Albayzin quarter and San Nicolas mirador The city center: Allow 3 days.

Located southeast of Andalusia at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, Granada is a cultural and tourism but also a lively student city. Known mainly for its famous Alhambra Palace, Granada cache countless gems included some World Heritage by UNESCO. Its historic center is divided into four ancient cities: Albayzin (Muslim origin), the Realejo-San Matias (Jewish), the Sacromonte (gypsy) and the city center (Christian origin).

Difficult to identify all the wonders to see, but we'll try ...

 

The Alhambra and the Generalife

Alhambra comes from the Arabic الحمراء, Al-Hamra ', which means "red" because of the color are the walls at sunset

It takes half a day to visit and think about booking in advance for your input Alhambra even if the only garden tour is simply magical ... and much less expensive. This fabulous palace complex was initiated in the 13th century by the first Nasrid sultan Al-Ahmar but owes its splendor and his son Yusuf first Muhamad V. Being built on the hill of Sabika, the Alhambra offers a splendid view of the city, the district of Albayzin but also on the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

 

The Albayzin quarter and San Nicolas viewpoint

What a joy to wander through the maze of cobbled streets enchanting ... Wandering in this set of small streets you will discover charming squares, hidden gardens ... And what a view of the Alhambra! You get lost with delight and you can have like me the chance to discover a small restaurant that serves paella to die for. If I have a council made the ultimate travel the Cruces de Mayo (May Cross).

The city center

 

Again so many things to see ... better to have a guide with a map and go to the tourist office nearest to obtain a map as soon as possible so as not to miss anything ... although it is still a pleasure to return to this city ... among other things: the Royal Chapel, the Cathedral, the Monastery of San Jeronimo ... and do not hesitate to go enjoy a cerveza on the Paseo de los especially sad sight.

Many walks are possible including the ascent to Pico Veleta (3398m), after 3 hours from the heights of Pradollano (2550 meters) ... for the brave (or trained!) You can climb up through 2:30 Mulhacen more.

In summer shuttles do most of the way, you have only a few meters to go to finish.

In winter, you can ski! Indeed Pradollano is the largest ski resort in Spain: Go see www.cetursa.es. You can see the sea from the top ... And let's face it, skiing in the morning and swim near Malaga in March: the dream is not it?
