This place is just gorgeous, home to the historical Alhambra, if you check out its own entry, its gorgeous enough to have a special mention. This is an extremely laid back town, which takes an extra long siesta every day, due to the heat. Such a large history of the actual city. There are so many religions living side by side, all so apparent by the design of the architecture of their buildings, between Catholic, Muslim, Islamic, Jewish, Spanish, then the oldest part of town, Albaycin and Sacromonte, then the area of town taken by Moroccan people, with the best falafel you have ever tasted.
Granada is often referred to as the home of Flamenco, with beautiful dance. It allows a wide variety of ´tapas´food to be eaten, most bars provide a plate of tapas with every drink bought!
It is easy to see how this place can be so addictive, and people get lost here, many travellers opting to stay and work in establishments in return for their board and lodge.
