Hola Granada!

Hello everyone! How are you all? Recently i had traveled to Granada in Spain and i thought i would do a little blog post on it!

Why Granada?? Well for me i love the history of Granada. Studying Spanish, Granada came across in many of the literature texts. Granada was run by the Moorish rulers and this was known as the Conquista. Over time the Christians wanted the land back and after many years of war the Reconquista happened.


There is still a huge Arab and Muslim influence here in Granada. Walking along the streets, people here are talking Arabic with a mixture of Spanish :)


Everyone i have spoken to always says they have fallen in love with Granada and now i can understand why.




I also managed to fit in some skiing in Sierra Nevada, unfortunately the snow had started to melt but it was still a lot of fun skiing!



I am now in love with Granada! It is such an incredible and beautiful place with a rich history. I hope you enjoyed the pictures! What have you all been up to in the holidays?

    That sounds like a place I'd love to visit. It sounds like there would be a lot of gorgeous textiles & things like that due to the mix of cultures. Beautiful place to visit as well!
