I had already become skeptical, with all the praise heaped on Granada. “Most beautiful city in Spain, best example of Moorish architecture anywhere in the world, breathtaking, fascinating, spectacular, unique, and so on.”
But when I got there, well, see for yourself.
Granted, the mountains in the back looked great, reflecting the last rays of the setting sun. But it was by far not as grand as I had expected.
I couldn’t even find a hotel.
Pretty mountains. Hope you found somewhere to sleep!
Yes terrible. I wonder where the city disappeared. I hope the weather was right for sleeping out.
Luckily, there are lots of empty caves around here.
But I was worried the whole night that someone would disappear me too.
Debes escapar hasta La Alhambra…no conozco personalmente…siempre me han deslumbrado las fotografías y conceptos arquitectónicos de la arquitectura morisca en España. Si vistas el lugar sube los disparos de tu cámara. Please!
He pensado lo mismo sobre Granada antes, pero como ves en la foto, no hay nada de eso aqui. :-(
Hmm. Tal vez todo fue destruido en la guerra civil.
Yep, has an industrial and grimy feel in certain parts.
There might be some attractions in town, did you check? Also: if you could not find a hotel, does this mean that they are all booked? If so, what are all those tourists looking at? ;-)
Looking at the photo again, I am now thinking that it may all have been self-check-in, so I was waiting for a porter in vain. I just should have walked through the open door and made my bed.
Doesn’t look like Granada I visited ;-)
Maybe you were here before the civil war?
I believe I’m a bit younger than that :P
Or at the time of al-Andalus. :P
Now you can be right, I remember being there with Rumi and writing and watching the stars ;-)
