Stairway in the beautiful Generalife Gardens, Granada / Spain (by Warren Bodnaruk). The beautiful Generalife gardens reside above the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The Generalife was built in the 13th century and it occupies the slopes of the Hill of the Sun (Cerro del Sol), from which there is a complete view over the city and the valleys of the rivers Genil and Darro. Definitely the most extravagant and beautiful gardens I've ever seen!
48 Hours in Granada, Spain From Plaza de San Nicolas, you can see the Alhambra from afar which is absolutely breathtaking and worth spending time at. Seeing this part of Granada first will orient you with the background for visiting the Alhambra the next day. The walk back into town was a good way end to the tour as we took the crowded and energetic Paseo de Los Tristes and ended up in Plaza Mayor where more tapas bars were.
