Like many cities, it is impossible to see the city of Granada in one day. And it is even harder when you take into account that the famous Alhambra is part of the trip to Granada. Tickets to Alhambra are notoriously hard to obtain and we ended up not visiting the site. I was bummed at first but to tell you the truth now I am glad. We had only one day for the city on this trip and it was filled to the brim with so much beauty that I am not sure there was any place left for Alhambra! We saw it from the outside - framed by marvelous Sierra Nevada Mountains. And now there is a "must-see" reason to return to the gorgeous city of Granada in the future.
