Costa del Sol, Málaga & Granada, Spain - 2019 Trip
Day Three: Alhambra, Granada – Part One
What I had planned to be a “cheap as chips” four day break to my favourite quick & easy destination, Malaga, Spain, turned out to be more of a travel trip instead of lying on the beach everyday! when I was planning to go I thought just one day I’d like to travel out to somewhere out of Costa del Sol, I was looking into going to Granada and visiting the wonderful Alhambra but wow, I didn’t realise how popular this place is! just to book tickets into the most famous part of the palace, the ‘Plaza de Nazaríes’, you need to book three months in advance due to the Spanish limiting the number of tourists who can visit in a day – I had one week to find a ticket!!! did I make it? just by the skin of my teeth I found one opening on the Thursday I was going to be there so I snapped it up and sorted out my coach ticket 🙂
As well as spending an extremely long day visiting Granada (I was up at 5am to catch a train to Malaga, then a 2.5 hr coach ride to the city), I also checked out my favourite cosmopolitan city, Malaga, where I was staying Benalmadena, Fuengirola via a boat trip and a surprise last day I visited the amazing Malaga Airport Museum which was a bit of a find near the existing airport where I left my bag in storage before I headed back home to blighty!
As ever – enjoy the photos from this great trip! 🙂
