20 Photos That Will Inspire You to Visit Granada 

Granada

Granada is a small Andalusian city in Southern Spain. The first time I visited Granada in 2014, I instantly fell head over heels in love with the place. Since then, I visited another 6 times. I just couldn’t stay away!

The kind people, the variety of character in each neighbourhood, the winding cobbled streets, the thick Andalusian culture, the magical atmosphere and the unbelievable architecture is so overbearing that it makes me want to live in Granada. In fact, I’m sure that I will live there at some point.

Even if it’s just a 1 day trip (shame on you), or a week long expedition, you will not be underwhelmed. There are endless ways to interact with Granada. The more you see, the more you won’t want to leave. I spent over 2 months in total in Granada and I still want to go back. I’m finding it difficult to even truly capture the city’s beauty through words. I’ll try with photos instead.

    I especially love your views overlooking the neighborhoods, but all your photos are breathtaking. I was completely unaware of Granada before reading this, but you’re right that this has inspired me to visit. It looks like an incredible region with such unique architecture and landscape.

    I love the sunflower field. Makes me think of the Provence in France where I went on holiday with my parents when I was still a kid 🙂
