How have you been? So this is my last post in my series of travel posts on Spain. You can read my last 3 posts on Madrid, Seville and Granada by clicking on the links in case you missed them. So my last stop on my trip was Barcelona and it was literally like saving the best for the last. Barcelona was a world of its own. A city overflowing with art and beautiful buildings and full of life and energy, it was really hard to say adios and fly back to San Francisco. There is so much to do here, I am at a loss where to start. This is the best I could do in 3 days to scratch the surface of this vibrant city.
Hope you enjoyed reading my last 2 posts on Madrid and Seville. If you are planning a trip to Spain I would say you read those posts first as they give you an introduction to Spain. Anyhow, after reluctantly leaving Seville to head to Granada, I finally made my way to this city. Granada was an interesting mixture of Moorish and Spanish architecture and needless to say the main reason for me to visit the city was the Alhambra. However, Granada did pleasantly surprise me. There was a lot more to the city than the Alhambra and it looked like a scene out of the Arabian nights. I took a taxi to get to our hotel and it costed about 30 €.
Hope you enjoyed reading my blog post on “Madrid in 2 days” last week. So from Madrid, I headed down south towards the very beautiful city of Seville (pronounced Seviya). Seville was everything Madrid wasn’t. It’s known as the “Frying Pan” of Spain and is located in the Andalusian region. I loved this place as it gave me the actual flavor of Spain that Madrid lacked. The weather was nice and warm (can get really hot in summer), the streets and buildings were beautiful, the sangria strong and the tapas hot. If you want to see a Flamenco show in Spain – I would highly suggest you do so in the South. One of the mistakes I made was not spending enough time in Seville. I would highly suggest you spend at-least 2 days here. But if you were on a time crunch like me, follow my itinerary below:
