Tourism in Granada

Hello everyone,
Today we spent the day in Granada. We haven't been able to go to just do some tourism. We usually go to run errands or do paperwork but nothing else. It was so beautiful.
Anyhow, I thought I would post some photos and let you see Granada :). Let me know what you think.
Us 5 in Granada. I am happy because now that Alberto and Ashley are here I can finaly be in the photos. Usually I am the one that takes them :)
We went up to the top of this mountain and we found this "look out" area. You could see the center and south of the city and neighbour cities around Granada. This is only one small part of the city that you see behind us. I took 7 photos of just the center and the south. Matthew went to the other side and took another 6 or so of the rest of the center and the north side.

Granada is huge. The metropolitan area of Granada has half a million people. The university of Granada has more than 60,000 students. So much work to do, can't wait to start!

You can sit in "terrazas" and get a coke. They give you a "tapa" to go with it which is a snack. Only the snack is so big that you can get yourself 2 cokes and eat dinner for free. I love Andalucia :).


I hit the price though, I wasn't looking for it but I found the street where all the main clothing stores are. HAHAHA!!

Although it was over 102 degrees the streets were packed.




Matthew is more of a nature person, and that is why he absolutly loved Asturias. I liked Asturias, don't take me wrong, and I love to see God's beautiful creation. But I admit I am a city girl and love architecture. I love buildings :) Anyhow, this is the post office in one of the main streets.

This is a photo that I took of the front door of one of the catholic cathedral in Granada. It was huge, this is just a small part of it.
I will post more photos of Granada next time I get out. Talk to you guys later

Pilar, what would they serve you for tapas? What kinds of prices do you have to pay for such things there? I am so curious about things there. I'd love to see more pictures, even of things like where you buy your food and such. And don't forget when you get settled to let us see your house. It is fascinating to me to read of life in other parts of the world.
