Today in Granada we explored the Alhambra. Bonnie and Brian had a guided tour and Duke and I explored the parts of the Alhambra that don’t require a reservation in advance. We toured the extra special parts last tine we were here. But we were amazed to find out how many museums and parts of the Alhambra are open and free without a reservation.
After exploring all the free parts we went and had coffee on the terrace of the Parador which is actually inside the Alhambra.
Then we walked up to el Sillo del Moro, the site of a fort that overlooks the Alhambra and all of Granada. It was blown up by Napoleons troops when they left the city but the views were stunning.
On our way down from the view point we met up with Bonnie and Brian and went for some Tapas in a couple of packed bars near our hotel and the Plaza Nueva. We had been joking about all the hams being fake but we were truly surprised to discover that these hams are fake!
For dinner we ate at an absolutely wonderful steak restaurant, Negro Carbón.
