Trip Moment Recommendations
📍Velilla- Granada, Spain 🇪🇸
Heading to the next city 🌆 - Granada ⛰️ we decided to go by the beach not the high way since the weather is nice and sunny 😎
We stop by a town called 📍la Velilla ☀️🌊⛱️
It is definitely a holiday place, you can go to the water park and beach and surfing 🏄♂️ there.
And there, I’ve tasted the BEST paella 🥘 in Spain 🇪🇸🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤
It was totally a surprise, but yeah! We ordered a paella 🥘 Sangria 🍹and Coquettes (yes! again!)
Well, there we have a winner 🏆
📍Taberna Belga ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Warning ⚠️ to navigate the road into this town is quite dangerous, so don’t always trust google maps 😂
📍Basílica de San Juan de Dios -> Lovely and classy church ⛪️
📍Catedral de Granada-> Grand Cathedral ♥️
📍Alhambra -> To enter the 📍Jardines del Generalife it is a LONG WALK to the ticket office 🎫 and if you are willing to pay for a taxi 🚕 if you have elderly or children this might be better. As I remember it is hardly you can find parking there.
⚠️And before you go up there, check if you have your ID with you as it is required for buying the ticket 🎫
The whole site is big and easier to scan a QR code to see the map to make sure you visit everything ☀️♥️
We also spend some time wandering through the city centre, it’s busy and full of churches and cathedrals ⛪️💓
Follow for more- next city 📍Cartagena, Spain 🇪🇸

The Beauty of Alhambra!
The Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It is one of the most famous monuments of Islamic architecture and one of the best-preserved palaces of the historic Islamic world, in addition to containing notable examples of Spanish Renaissance architecture.
It reflects the tradition of Moorish architecture developed over previous centuries. It is characterized by the use of the courtyard as a central space and basic unit around which other halls and rooms were organized. Courtyards typically had water features at their center, such as a reflective pool or a fountain.
Decoration was focused on the inside of the building and was executed primarily with tile mosaics on lower walls and carved stucco on the upper walls. Geometric patterns, vegetal motifs, and Arabic inscriptions were the main types of decorative motifs. Additionally, "stalactite"-like sculpting, known as muqarnas, was used for three-dimensional features like vaulted ceilings
Getting There - You can take one of the red minibuses called Alhambra Bus, routes C30 or C32. They leave every 8-12 minutes from Isabel Católica Square (Columbus monument).
