Holy Macarolly- this place rocks! Granada is by far my favourite place in Spain so far. Having no expectations, I came here without the slightest clue to what amazing things it would have in store for

Granada is Spain's hidden gem. Nestled among the mountains, it was the last Muslim stronghold in Spain and retains a lot of the Islamic culture. It is walkable, hikeable and is a nature lover's dream. It is also known for huge, delicious and FREE tapas! I recommed Umm Kalthum on Jardines Street near the Cathedral. Don't forget to visit the Alhambra while you are there! After 5 years living in Spain, Granada will always have my heart.
