After two short days in Barcelona, we flew to the south and started our Andalusia trip. The first stop was Granda, the multicultural city with the famous moorish palaces "Alhambra." We stayed in the beautiful and luxurious "Parador de Granada", a hotel that was converted from part of the moorish palace and mosque built between 1332 and 1354. The room was lovely with an amazing view of the famous buildings that makes up the Alhambra site; the garden is so charming with the small fountain and all the ruins, which we took lots of pictures of.
After checked in we took a walk downtown Granada, found lots of interesting Arabic souvenir shops and a great bar for local "Alhambra" beer. Hope you enjoy the photos, see you soon with more of the breathtaking palaces in Alhambra!!
