Buenos días! Hoy visitamos la Alhambra, antigua ciudad palaciega del Reino Nazarí, que corona la colina mas alta de Granada. Prepárate para pasar mucho calor y caminar durante horas, pero abre bien los ojos que merece la pena! ( Y no te olvides de reservar la entrada con tiempo )

Good morning! Today we're visiting the Alhambra of Granada, the palace complex of the Nasrid dynasty, located on the highest hill of Granada. Get ready to melt under the sun and walk for hours, but open you eyes cause it's totally worth it! ( And don't forget booking in advance )


Comienza la visita en el Palacio de Carlos V, el edificio más reciente con un original patio circular lleno de columnas.

Start the visit at Charles V Palace, the newest building with a unique round courtyard full of columns.


Continúa visitando La Alcazaba, la construcción más antigua, utilizada para la vigilancia y defensa.

Next visit the Alcazaba, the oldest building, used for defensive purposes. 



Entra a los Palacios Nazaríes, (tienes que llegar a la hora que ponga en tu entrada!) Tardarás al menos una hora en recorrerlos, mira suelos y techos, la decoración de las paredes, las vistas por los ventanales y cada fuente!

Enter the Royal Complex (be there at the time written in your ticket!) It'll take you at least an hour to visit; look at the floors, the ceillings, the Wall decorations, the view from the balconies and each fountain!


No te pierdas las espectaculares bóvedas de mocárabes...

Check out the spectacular dome built as a honeycomb...


las paredes de azulejos y detallados relieves...

the walls with all the details and beautiful tiles...


y los techos artesonados de madera!

and the wood ceilings!





El simbólico Patio de los Leones, una rareza dado que según el Corán no se deben representar seres animados.

The unique Court of the Lions, something not really usual as muslims are not supposed to represent alive beings acording to the Quran.



Las vistas al Albaicín son una maravilla.

Take a look at the Albaycin from this wonderful windows.





Descansa un poco paseando por el Palacio del Partal y sus encantadores jardines.

Relax a Little around the Partal Palace and its charming gardens.



Termina la visita en el Generalife, la villa donde descansaban los reyes musulmanes de Granada. Pasea por los frescos jardines llenos de plantas y recorre la escalera de agua.

End the visit at the Generalife, the summer palace of the Narsid rulers of Granada. Walk by the fresh gardens full of plants and climb the water staircase.







Si todavía tienes tiempo y fuerzas descubre la ciudad de Granada, con sus pintorescos barrios del Albaicín y el Sacromonte. De momento lo dejamos para otra ocasión.

If you are in for more go to discover the city of Granada, with its authentic streets at the Albaycin and Sacromonte. But I'll leave this for my next visit. 


LO MEJOR/THE BEST: Disfrutar del Generalife tranquilamente al atardecer / Enjoy the calmed Generalife before the sunset

LO PEOR/THE WORST: El calor, y que te hagan dejar el cochecito del bebé en consigna para entrar a los palacios y al Generalife, y cuando sales tener que volver a la entrada a recogerlo./ The heat, and they make you leave the baby stroller at the entrance of the palaces and the Generalife, so you need to go all the way back to the entrance once you exit.
