Seville : Day 3…

Big trip today. Huge. We three got up super early to board a train to Granada. Nearly three hours each way. But boy was it worth it.

The city of Granada, like Seville, is also in Andalusia, and is home to something quite special; The Alhambra.

The Alhambra ('The Red One') is a palace and fortress complex on a hilltop. It is one of the most famous monuments of Islamic architecture and one of the best-preserved palaces of the historic Islamic world, in addition to containing notable examples of Spanish Renaissance architecture.

We loved it. Crowded yes, but worth the hustle and bustle.

The vistas out over the landscape were amazing. The architecture inside the palace sensational. The gardens a delight.

Having had our fill of the Alhambra palace and fort up close we headed down into the town below and then up, up, up again on the other side of the valley to Saint Nicolas plaza for a fresh perspective on the place. Very Insta-friendly.

We then walked back down into the town and a found a great place to eat just by the cathedral. Menu of the day; mushroom bruschetta, sautéed chicken with olives and sun dried tomatoes, followed by Greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts and flower petals. Yum! All accompanied by beers, free tapas and free post meal baby deserts.

We then caught the last train back to Seville full and sated. An amazing day. A Granada day out. Great views and great food.
