Today we spent a full day in Granada having got the bus in without a hitch! We didn’t spend much time in the city as we headed straight for the Palace. One thing to bear in mind if you ever visit (13 euros per person, well worth the money) is there are morning and afternoon tickets. We got there about 11.45 am and only had until 2pm to visit the whole thing – it worked out well but just be careful you don’t turn up at 1pm and expect to spend the afternoon there!
There is so much to see and so much information available, we’ve included a link to their official website if you’re interested in visiting. (http://www.alhambra.org/eng/index.asp?secc=/alhambra/history_alhambra)
After we left we headed for the Moorish part of the city, the Albayzin Quarter where we had a lovely meal of humus and roasted vegetable salad, followed by a chicken tagine for around 34 euros.
Then we mooched around the streets that were very colourful, before heading off back into the city to get the bus. We didn’t know where to catch it so Dean had to do some detective work to find the stop.
Tomorrow we head off for our main destination of La Manga, so we got some provisions in and got everything ready for the five hour journey to get there…
