is an interesting place. It is a mixture of old (the Alhambra, the original streets) with the new (modern shops, a very young crowd, as it is a university town). It is a lively place with plenty of street musicians, a spirit of flamenco in the air (though less than I was hoping for), and one of the best part--teahouses! The Arabic influences are my favorite part of Granada. Now I am going to tell you the single best part of Granada which most people will miss: the birds. In several places, you will see HUNDREDS of tiny, ovalish brown birds flying all over the place within a certain radius of their perching trees, but mostly just making a really loud racket. They can be found in several places and plazas, but in particular, on an unassuming side street in the courtyard of the "Banco de Espania," across the street from a scummy strip-joint. Here, the birds gather and talk with one another all day and all night long; I would often pass at 1 or 2 AM and they were easily…
When you're in
, don't miss the Seville Mosque. It's worth it.
is a bit laid back place, it feels quite far away from the rest of Europe and you can feel it. I really enjoyed the beaches, which are wide and half empty, top beaches in Europe. Feels almost like Jamaica. I loved the place.
… I was there and it was magnificent -- it's really beautiful.
… Great town with international appeal. Lots of beaches and good nightlife.
… Beware of the ladies at the entrance to the Cathedral! They'll hand you a rosemary sprig and then grab your hand, start telling you that you're beautiful and smart and will have lots of luck and children, and then demand 5 Euros! They are very bossy and pushy - keep your hands in your pockets or even behind your back!
… You have to go to Carnaval! It is amazing. One of the best times you will ever have. I loved walking around and just absorbing everything -- the costumes, the drinking, the dancing.
… Been three times -- everything about it is just fantastic, from the welcome to the people who work there.
