Last year we've been to Seville and this time we decided to go to Granada. In Granada, as well as in Seville, there is an old Arab stronghold and gardens called Alhambra de Granada. But entry tickets are sold out for the whole month ahead, so we just strolled around the city and enjoyed the views on Alhambra from outside.

Plaza de Santa Ana.

After a bit of walking we got hungry and went to for lunch to Bodegas Castañeda, not far away from Cathedral. It was pretty crowded and we had to wait on the bar for a place. Once we got the place we ordered big tapas plate for 19,50 EUR for two persons, but we couldn't finish it :)

After lunch we went for a walk around Cathedral in the city center.

Catedral de Granada

One of the cathedral’s entrances. Entry fee is 5 EUR and it didn’t look very interesting inside, so we skipped :)

On the streets some tourist stuff is sold.

Dried sweets

In Granada, same as in Seville, there are oranges growing right on the street.

There are churches and cathedrals all around the old town.

After walking around for a bit more we went back home. There's still snow in the mountains around Granada, even though it's already +20-25 in the valley.
