    Parque Central

    This is the main square of Granada, which is not a very big town. Nice to stroll around and sit on parking bench. The main buildings on this square are the massive Cathedral and the Alhambra hotel.

    On one of the islands we saw some monkeys and one with a baby clinging to it which was fantastic. They are used to tourists so they come down to get a look at you.

    This church on Calle Calzada used to be a fort before it became a church. I did not actually go inside ( I was probably a bit churched out) but it is beautiful from the outside.

    The central Parc brings the city together. Granada has a very small town feel, all the horse drawn taxis leave from here.
