Granada

Granada is a city in southern Spain with a beautiful view, delicious food, and of course–a rich history. Granada was the last city to be conquered in the conquest of Spain by the Catholic Monarchs. It had a heavy Islamic influence which you can see when looking at the architecture of the city.

The Alhambra is probably the most famous attraction in Granada. It is the palace/fortress in which the Moorish rulers lived in, in the 13th century. It is exquisite, with beautiful gardens, amazing architecture, and Arabic inscriptions decorating the walls.

Since Granada is only about a five-hour drive away from Morocco and the influence of the African country is prevalent. The influence extends to things like little Moroccan-like markets, food, and some of the people.

All in all, Granada was beautiful, and I hope to return one day.
