Day 336 – Granada, Spain

We continued to explore beautiful Granada today. Although the weather was a bit cold and overcast, we marched on to visit the alluring Alhambra (the most visited site in all of Spain). Since our tickets were not valid until 2:00pm, we walked around Granada’s city center prior to hiking up a hill to the Alhambra. The Alhambra is quite massive. We spent almost four hours exploring the complex’s many exquisite gardens, palaces, and fortifications. It is an absolutely stunning place! The pictures below DO NOT do it justice.
