    Granada "An absolute must-be"

    by Carmela71 Updated Jan 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Granada is a famous city and not only because the Alhambra and all the muslin style monuments.

    The best time to come and visit Granada is in September & October or April & may, it is not to hot and not to cold.

    If you want to see something typically Spanish you should come to the Cruces, this festival is on the 3rd of May and all the streets are full filled of flowers and outside music and pubs

    Granada has a lot of Baroque Architecture that it is not as famous but is equally beautiful to visit.

    Granada is a university town and offers a range of amenities comparable to those of any modern city.

    As well you will be able to do skiing in the highest mountain of Spain. Sierra Nevada.

    Fondest memory: The Alhambra is my place, what can i say... also their “tapas”.

    The old Arabic part of the city: the "Albaicín",

    The Cathedral with the Royal Chapel

    The "Cartuja"-monastery.

    The Carrera del Darro

    The Sacromonte Hill

    Also some excursions:

    Visit las alpujarras, Sierra nevada and Granada coast: Costa Tropical

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Cordoba offers rich and varied monuments:

    The Mezquita

    The fortress of the Christian Kings or Omega Gardens with beautiful gardens,

    The Synagogue,

    The ruins of Medina Azahara

    The Jewish quarters.

    Fondest memory: If you go to Cordoba try to go in May.

    Each weekend there is something.

    The first one is the Cruces, the Patios, the festival and another one that I don’t remember (the festival of the wine, just remember it) , but try to visit the second one, the patios is absolute brilliant! ....

    Do not miss it!

    Cadiz

    by Carmela71 Updated Jan 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: For two wonderful years I have lived in Cadiz a really nice city to visit if you have time, preferable in Carnival season.

    My experience in Cadiz was great, even if my studies at Sea Sciences University were catastrophic! But late I realized that what I really like was being with people and client services and attention to the public, etc ... that it is what I am doing right now.

    Fondest memory: Cadiz is the oldest European city, was an important harbor during the golden age-period for its commerce with the "new world".

    It has an impressive cathedral and the atmosphere is incredible during Carnival.

    The Coast is magnificent!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Almeria

    by Carmela71 Updated Jan 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: ALMERIA is contrast. Deserts, mountains and amazing beaches, all in one.

    Its beaches are sandy and flat, with many intimate coves.

    The Alpujarras region, which extends into the province of Granada, offers a fascinating landscape.

    The desert with a visit to Tabernas and Mini Holliwood Park is a must.

    The Natural park of Cabo de Gata visiting the beaches of Monsul, Los Escullos, de los Genoveses....

    Almeria and its Alcazaba and Cathedral.

    And my favorite place: Almerimar, just down the Ejido, where after the plastic culture a little paradise appears. Its port is beautiful.

    Fondest memory: See my Almeria Page for more information

    The name of Almeria proceed from the Arabic and means "mirror of the sea".

    Ronda

    by Christianne Written Nov 16, 2002

    Favorite thing: In Ronda I have twice as well.
    The second time it was better because I had the time before our breakfast with Radmilo to explore it.
    The first time it was part of an organized tour, we didn't stay. We just saw part of Ronda through the bus of the travel agency.

    Marbella

    by Christianne Written Nov 16, 2002

    Favorite thing: Radmilo and I, we stayed in Marbella during our honeymoon.We hired a car and we visited the rest of the Costa del Sol (almost the rest).
    Marbella is an gorgeous city. Amazing architecture, delicious food. However, I'd say that dyring the night it's quiet city. The nightlife is not according to our standards.As for the beach, we didn't like it. We preferred the swimming pool. However, we were amazed by Marbella.

    Benalmadena

    by Christianne Written Nov 15, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: During our honeymoon in Andalucia, Radmilo and I, we visited Benalmadena and we stopped by for having a coffee.
    We loved Benalmadena!
    About Benalmadena:
    Benalmadena is located between Torremolinos and Fuengirola.The municipality is divided into 3 district parts,Benalmadena Costa,Benalmadena Pueblo and Arroyo de la Miel.
    Carthaginians, Phoenicians,Romans, Greeks,Arabs and Visigoths passed from there and left their influence, especially the Arabs and Romans.

    Fondest memory: Although we were amazed by Benalmadena, it didn't happen the same with coffee. It was summer, we stopped in the Cafe de Indias, ordered a cold coffee.However, the coffee was not at all cold.

    cadiz

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: The city of Cádiz is very beautiful. Only ist location is amazing: a narrow peninsula jutting into the bay. Its streets retain a strong colonial atmosphere, since its architecture inspired the buildings in the cities built by the Spaniards in America. That is why they say that Cádiz and Havana are sister cities. Besides, Gaditanos are always in a good mood and ready to make a party.

    Alhambra – way down

    by m-joy Written Apr 2, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Don’t miss the way down on the backside of the Alhambra in Granada, which leads to the Darro River. Numerous street cafes give you a nice view on the Sacromonte, as well as on the Albaicin.
