Located in the Andalusia region of Spain, Granada is the capital city of the province of Granada. With a colourful history that includes being ruled by the Moors, Muslims and Christians, it is an area with a rich mix of culture and architecture.
Granada is a hub of Spanish- Islamic art, in particular Alhambra, Generalife and Albayzin, It is also a city that boasts many parks and gardens. It is a spectacular area to visit on its own, or as a day trip from Seville.
Weather wise, its winters are cool but comfortable, with an average temperature of 12.6°C (55°F). Summers are hot and dry with an average temperature of 34°C (93.2°F) in its hottest month, July, however temperatures often soar above 40°C (104°). Autumn and Summer in Granada are quite variable, with the temperatures ranging from cool to quite warm.
There are so many sights and wonderful things to do in Barcelona. In my opinion, enjoying Gaudi's architecture is essential. Gaudi's imagination goes beyond words, so I thought a photo blog fitting for such a creative mind.
It is almost impossible to visit Barcelona without coming across his inspiration. You could almost say that Gaudi is quintessentially Barcelona with his work being featured in apartment buildings, parks, houses and of course most famously, the cathedral. Being someone who dreams quite vividly, his work made me wonder how Gaudi's imagination worked. Did he dream his creations in waking hours or in his sleep? This I am unsure of, all I know is that his architecture is quite wondrous and certainly a place in which you can become lost for a few hours as you walk the city and take the wonder in.
Whilst I didn't get to visit all of the Gaudi sites in Barcelona, here are three popular sites that you should include in your Barcelona intinerary. But for now you can join the adventure below.
