Granada belongs to UNESCO's World Heritage List and it's historical center full of medieval, Nasrí style and even, ancient Roman ruins make it an amazing place for learning while strolling its narrow streets, tasting one delicious tapa at a time.

As this year's schedule is turning crazier as July approaches due to my final project in architecture, I had to leave Valencia during Fallas festivities with all the pain in my heart, although I went to visit a friend who's currently living in Granada, which made everything easier and super enjoyable. Weather was amazing in a city in which thermometers usually drop down to -8º during the worst Winter days, and I got to do a great recap on a city I visited a long ago during my Primary School days.

Granada is a city full of contrasts. While there's "La Alhambra" watching all over the new city with its Nasrí palaces full of intricate patterns, tiles, and fountains, there's also a younger side to Granada present in every square downtown, coexisting with the old and giving new uses to most of the ancient buildings crowding the city. It is a perfect city to be a millennial for sure: there're plenty of open spaces hiding gardens and other public marvels, as well as some of the best universities and Colleges in Spain and, last but not least, there's plenty of pubs and restaurants which will feed you with a tapa (Spanish word to say snack consisting on a piece of potato omelet with bread, ham & cheese or similar) as you order your regular glass of wine, beer or tinto de verano. I was lucky enough to have one of my best friends there, who guided me not only around Granada's best places to eat but also, who educated me about the many cultures coexisting in this city among the centuries and how they built the city as it is nowadays.

My favorite sights of the city were at the Ermit of San Miguel Alto, which is super close to La Alhambra and almost at the same height, so you can get pretty good pictures and sights from there. After that, we headed to the neighborhood of Albaicín, which is one of the oldest parts of the city and which has some interesting buildings which can be visited for free every Sunday (they belong to the called "Dobla de Oro" route. There's an ancient public bathroom, some typical ancient Andalusian houses...). My tips for visiting Granada in one week is to wear comfortable sneakers and mix them with something fancier on top, as well as not forgetting your sunglasses and a shawl for nighttime, as it can get a bit chilly.

What about you? Have you ever visited Granada? Do you have any favorite place to visit there?
