A 2-hour train ride from Córdoba brought us to Granada. Granada is a much larger city with more to see. However, it’s main draw for most is the Alhambra. Our tickets are for Sunday, which means we have a couple of days to wander before hand. Today will be the last sunny day in the Andalusian region, before rain sets in and lasts until the day we leave Spain.
Given that today is the only sunny day left, we decided to check out views of the Alhambra and the Moorish neighborhood of Albaicín. I had strategically booked our hotel located at the foot of the Alhambra and Albaicín neighborhood, so it was an easy walk…uphill.
Sacromonte is a Roma (gypsy) neighborhood east of Albaicín. There isn’t much to see in this small neighborhood, but it has what we think is the best view of Alhambra and the Granada Cathedral, which we had accidentally stumbled upon.
Another place we had stumbled upon is a romantic garden in the Palacio de los Cordova.
We spent the rest of the late afternoon/early evening “grazing” through the city. Picked up a couple of umbrellas, and we’re now all set to explore Granada…in the rain.
