Visit the Alhambra! I took this picture while strolling the grounds. Most stunning to me was the juxtaposition of the intricacy of the mudejar architecture with the simplicity and serenity of the reflecting pools and the glorious natural setting!
Part of the Nasrid Palaces is EL PARTAL. Also a beautiful Palace, it consists of the Palace Porche, Gardens ( Jardines Del Partal ), Rauda, Palace of Yusef III and Walkway of Towers. It also has a pool which gives a beautiful reflection of the Palace
Day 13 - Castuera - Campanario >> 19k
Another short but nice slightly undulating day, again walking on a mixture of quiet roads and earthen tracks through some pretty countryside.
No Facilities en-route, so make sure that you have a good breakfast before leaving in the morning and pack plenty of water as well as Supply of snacks.
As this was Good Friday we went straight to the Ayuntamiento in Campanario and they kindly arranged for us to be accommodated in their Sports hall. (Free of charge)
Lots of choice of restaurants for your evening meal but we opted for one quite close to the Sports hall which was on the edge of town.
Visit Guadix and La Calohorra Castle
I spent there two days, but from Granada you can do day excursions to Guadix, as it is only one hour trip, and walk along this monumental city.
Also take the road again and visit Calahorra castle
For more information visit my Gaudix and La Calahorra pages
Getting to Granada is easy on the highway, but once you get into the city, it's hell! Roads are busy and sometimes streets are closed! Had to drive around for over an hour to find a parking space near the Alhambra, and the parking space is so bloody tight!!
My advice is to take the train and spend at least a night in Granada to really enjoy the city.
