My program took us on an overnight trip to Granada this past weekend. It ended up working out well because my friend, Isaiah is studying abroad in Granada so not only did I get to enjoy the views of Granada, but I also got to see a familiar face, which was very nice. On Saturday, when we arrived in Granada, we had a lot of free time so Isaiah took my friends & I to go get tapas. By the way, if I have not explained what tapas are yet, it is an appetizer or snack with the idea that you order more than one & share with everyone at the table. Anyways, what is unique of Granada is their very good deals. For example, at the tapas place, you got one free tapa when you ordered a drink…& the drinks & tapas were HUGE, I couldn’t even finish mine, which is very rare.
The next morning, we had to wake up very early to go to the Alhambra. We found out very quickly that our sleep deprivation was well worth it because how incredible the Alhambra is. So just some quick background info that I learned during my completely Spanish guided tour, the Alhambra is a palace & fort that was occupied by the Catholic Kings, Isabelle & Ferdinand, in the 1400’s & is also where Christopher Columbus received royal endorsement for his expedition. The tour lasted around 4 hours & we definitely still did not see the entire palace…so long story short, the Alhambra is MASSIVE. Please enjoy the excessive amount of pictures I took while visiting the Alhambra 🙂
