Even if we moved to a village 14 km outside Granada some years ago, it doesn't mean we forgot Granada, we still love to go back to the historic and beautiful places like El Albayzin.
World Heritage Site since1994, all cobblestone narrow streets and plazas, the most famous Plaza de San Nicolas, where you have the best wiews for Alhambra, both day and night-time.
|Cobblestone stairs and wiew over Granada.|
Lots of typical bars, and don't make the mistake to go to the most fashion looking, go where you see Spanish people, I went with my doughter Andrea this time, and we had breakfast in one of the traditional bars, coffe and toast with smashed raw tomatosauce, some olive oil and salt, best way to begin the day, also "churros" is a very traditional Spanish breakfast, with hot choclate or cafe-latte to dip them in. Breakfast on a bar is a MUST HAVE for Spanish people.
|Early breakfast in a typical bar.|
|Frying churros, this is an art , even if it isn·t the healthiest breakfast.|
|Cobblestone, the new generation can learn this art again in Granada.|
|Carlos V Palace ,Alhambra and the remaining snow in Sierra Nevada.|
You can have a look at the program and even buy the tickets here:
|Lots of artists come to paint The Albayzin.|
|The narrow streets to preserve the shadow and lower temperatures.|
We continued the Caldereria street where you have shops of North African craft, such as slippers, jewlery, pottery and you have small tea bars, "teterias" who also serve food , and sweets .
We went home for lunch after a refreshing drink ,and all the bars in Granada will give you a free tapa ,I come back tomorrow with the sunday lunch recipe, have a good night.
