The history of Granada reads like a thriller. The ancestors of the Granadas, the Iberians, first lived in Albayzin. In 711 AD, the Muslim army replaced the Visigoths to rule here. When Crdoba and Seville fell, Muslims began to flee to Granada to seek refuge and established an independent country. In the increasingly luxurious Alhambra Palace, this dynasty rule lasted for 250 years and became one of the wealthiest cities in medieval Europe.
In the afternoon of the Spanish
Granada, we sat on the high observation deck, hanging legs, listening to the guitar, lazy looking at the A Palace in the snow-capped mountains, from blue to white White and gold, and finally dyed red...
One thousand and one nights of the story is too beautiful, the impact of the oriental charm brought to us by Agong is too great, and it is not enough to turn around, horseshoe arches, Arab carvings, It is clear that there is a perfectly balanced column on the rugged hillside. Everything in this European country looks so novel. If you feel that it is not enough, you can look at her from another angle.
Daro Road is Granada's famous promenade street. On the right hand side, you can see the walls of the palace and the flying flags across the water. The left side is full of handicraft shops and spice shops, and there will be many deeper walks. Restaurants and small squares. Spend time in the afternoon and enjoy the city's great place!
The reason why this observatory occupies a very important position in the eyes of tourists is that it can look at the Alhambra, and against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, highlights the solemn atmosphere of the entire palace. Unfortunately, this day is cloudy and I can't see the snowy mountains in the distance. But the strong visual impact of the wide angle makes the cloud more powerful and has another flavor.
The early mornings in Spain are 1-2 hours later than in the country, especially in small cities like Granada. There are still very few pedestrians on the road in the morning, let alone tourists. Strolling to the old town, hardworking cleaners are cleaning the streets, they will always go out early and return, is the city's beautician. Walking in the old town and walking under the orange trees, the tranquility at the moment makes me feel the deep cultural heritage of the old city. I really hope that time will pass slowly, so that this quiet can last for a while.
