Walking around Granada isn't like walking around most major cities. In most cities you can't catch glimpses of massive snow-covered mountains or an ancient Moorish and Spanish fort (the Alhambra), part legendary summer palace, part stronghold. In most cities you can't wander lost along beautiful winding streets under red tiles and whitewashed walls with both Spanish and Moorish architectural influences in the old neighborhood (the Albaicin) as the delicate and sweet fragrance of orange blossoms swirls around you. Or pop into a bar on Calle Pedro Antonio or Calle Navas for a delicious Rioja or sangria and munch on light tapas, maybe some brie with honey or a small plate of paella. The best part about Granada? You can do all these things.
