Granada City

We have been so busy with the cave renovation over the past 18 months that we have not had time to explore other areas of Andalucia. Some good friends of ours thought that should change and invited us to spend the day at their (fantastic) house. Of course we accepted, a Spanish BBQ, hospitality and a guided tour of Granada....what could be better!

Below are are a handfull of many photos we took last Saturday, the first, when you walk around the corner is a bit of an eye opener...



The views are incredible, the city is full to the brim with history and culture.

Got a spare €1,000000? then you could buy a house like this, it wouldn,t be too difficult to sit on your patio with a morning coffee looking at the view (above)




Big big thanks to our friends in Granada - you know who you are! Muchas Gracias.
All in all it was a fantastic day. We will be going back soon for another visit....watch this space.

I promised GH I would take her to visit Alhambra one of these days. She's never been to Granada. Beautiful city, maybe just a tad too hot in the Summer.

Yes its lovely - I have been twice and can't wait to go again (I just didn't like the traffic!!). I saw the Alhambra on the first visit and it's amazing but so is the old part with the shops in the narrow streets. Stayed in a very nice Hotel for my 30th.
