How can my heart have so much desire to fall in love with so many places? Because just when I think I’ve reached maximum capacity, places like Granada happen.
The Andalusian sunshine, endless tapas, friendly culture and impressive history makes it a really easy city to love. Those are the characteristics that so many people rave about and now I can totally see why everyone said I just had to get there before I left Spain… but for me, the infrequently mentioned views were what sealed the deal.
The countless striking and unique views I found around every single orange-tree adorned corner.
Whether from atop the Alhambra, or through a white-washed street, the “vistas” never stopped.
And neither did my camera.
One of my favorite views was from the Mirador de San Nicolas. Although a very typical, touristic sight, it was so worth seeking out. Once we had wandered through some residential streets, we arrived to the “look out” and I was overwhelmed by the beauty.
It was the definition of picture perfect. While I stood, trying to absorb what was in front of me–the great Alhambra and Sierra Nevada Mountains–a group of men played and danced to traditional flamenco music, creating the perfect storm of Andalusian culture.
Granada is one of those cities that I could visit time and time again without tiring because it’s one of those cities where the surprises never stop.
It’s one of those cities that steals your heart and carefully tucks it away in a corner of one those sunny, cobblestone streets, while it awaits for your next return.
