One reason I travel is that I want to be changed. I want to go somewhere and see things that transforms me in a positive way. Alhambra did that for me. To say that I was blown away by the beauty, history and grandeur of the place would be an understatement.
Journey to Granada
With so much to see, we had to get an early start. It is about an hour drive from Nerja to Granada, so our driver Christian picked us up at 8:45am and off we went. The journey there was scenic, with the tall peaks of the Sierra Nevadas all around us. When we arrived at the entrance of Alhambra we met Christina, our local tour guide for the day. As all our guides have been on this trip so far, Christina was extremely knowledgeable about everything on this tour. As we had a little time until we could access the palace/citadel, Christina took that time to explain a little about the history.
