You can’t go to Granada and not see the monumental complex of The Alhambra. The dramatic towers hover over the town, strategically built there in 1237 by Muhammad I al-Ahmar. It changed hands many times over the course of history and remains a beautiful blend of Muslim and Christian art and architecture. Get your tickets to visit the grounds early because they sell out fast.
We had the amazing luck to stay in an air bnb with this view!
The free and delicious tapas kept coming (you can read about that tradition in my Tapas and Tinto post :)) and the winding uphill streets kept us hungry for more.
We loved the medieval feel of the historic area and the amazing food found in all the cafes along the river.
