  • Wow that view!

    by janeliv Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Tracks wind up the hillside behind the town and into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The atmosphere gradually changes from mediterranean to mountain, as you walk or drive through olive groves, orchards and forest. The view, on a clear day as far as Africa are stunning, and never fail to please. There are even conveniently placed drinking water springs where a thirst can be slaked, or a rest taken.

    Traveling to foreign countries requires a bit of a look at how the locals live. We hiked up some interesting streets, something that I am not so inclined to do by mysekf but traveling with a well seasoned traveller allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and see some areas of Granada I never would have considered going to. It really allowed us to see the local architecture as well as some of the "anti Americano" graffitti. It gives one cause for pause. Moreover it also provides some spectacular views of the city and gives us insight to how many people live their lives. I would not like to try and get a refrigerator up through those narrow streets, that is for sure!

    History shines through

    Fortified Wall

    If you do take the time to walk around Granada , it's history will shine through and offer up a wide variety of evidence to the fact. Case in the point this fortified wall next to the Jardines de Triunfo

    Postcard: Mirador San Nicol��s

    El mirador San Nicolas is a nice "plaza" from where you can "over view" a big part of Granada - as well as enjoy the most fantastic view of the Alhambra!
    The "mirador" is always crowded and often you will find street-"salesmen", listen to diferent musicians (of diferent kind of standard ;-)) or see people inlove kissing on this very romantic spot!
    The "mirador" is located in the beautiful Albaicin, and after a walk around the area is it a nice place to sit in one of the restaurants and enjoy something cold while watching the view!

    Incredible views

    The long drive bypassed many incredible views such as those pictured here, but many of my companions who were from South America did not seem to be interested. Checked with them later & was told such sceneries are common in South America. Now, I'm reeeeeeally hoping to visit South America!!!

    Walk away from the city center

    This is not a flat city, walk by the nearby hills, and you'll find a lot of nice spots, from simple small village street life, between north and south mediterranean life style; to a gipsy village carved into the rocky mountains...
