For some reason, I thought that Granada was a much bigger city than Sevilla (the city we arrived in and stayed on our first night). This might be because there was a really popular study abroad program for Granada back in college and every semester about 100 people went on it. It turns out that Granada is actually a quaint size for a city at 230K. And it also turns out that I quite like cities this size. It was the perfect size to wander around in for a couple days, with no plans in particular except to see the Alhambra. If you plan on visiting Granada, make sure you book your Alhambra tickets in advance as they only allow a certain number of visitors per day and they usually hit that number!
We literally spent our two days here walking, eating, walking, drinking coffee, and eating some more. It was perfect.
Also, since Granada is so small, you can’t really miss it, but make sure you spend some time walking through the Albayzin. That’s the area in these photos with the really narrow cobble streets that goes higher in altitude. So quaint and pretty!
