Spain, Andalusia - Granada

city tour, the Albaicin and ... flamenco

sunny 26 °C

We caught the bus into Granada and spent several hours wandering ... coffee in the square beside the Cathedral and window shopping. Lovely stores selling traditional Spanish items. Very relaxed.

However, our plan for the evening was to take a slow walk up the hill to enjoy the sights and sounds of The AlbaicĂ­n, which has also been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is the old Arabic quarter located on the hill opposite the Alhambra. It is characterised by cobble-stoned streets with white washed houses, lovely little alleyways and inviting restaurants. The imposing structure of the Alhambra dominates. Your eyes are drawn to it as it is visible everywhere you walk. A beautiful area.

We had reserved a table at a traditional restaurant for dinner and a flamenco concert. Yeah!!! They say that Flamenco started in Andalusia. We were very excited. It was a great show and a wonderful experience.
