    Yes, it is! Went there for the first time this Easter and was very impressed.

    Lots of tourists, though.

      True, it is rather full of tourists, but then again, that was my impression of Barcelona, too ;) . I’d been to Granada at Christmas nearly four years ago and completely fallen in love with it, but hadn’t made it back until last weekend and was again blown away by its beauty (this time in all its late-spring glory!).

    Yes, Barcelona has tons too. But it’s a much bigger city, and so it’s easier to escape them. We were there for all the processions (I guess a particularly busy time of year), so it was rammed.

    Nice weather too, ranging from mid-twenties one day to snowing in the Alpujarras.

    Did you stay in the Albaicín?

      Oh yeah, the processions must be nuts. We actually just stopped through this time as our main objective of the weekend was to climb Mulhacén. We spent a night in a mountain refugio and another in the Alpujarras and had a nice walk/lunch in Granada on our way back to Madrid. I did stay in the Albaicín in a hostel on my previous visit.

    Granada has lots of tourist, but no like Barcelona or Madrid. The tourist in Granada walk arround 3 or 4 places, but Granada is more than La Alhambra or El Albaicin, you can walk alone when the tourist (in Spain “guiris”) go to eat, normally 1 hour before that spanish, then you have a chance to make your Granada alone.

    Bye. Sorry about my english!!!

    From Granada!
