I would like to say visiting Granada was one of the best parts of the study abroad program in Spain. I’m not quite sure about living in Granada but visiting it was amazing. I’m so glad that now I have been to Granada and know about it and will think about it. Touring inside of Alhambra was so beautiful but Alhambra looks a lot better seeing it from San Nicholas, especially, at night, with the lights. Luckily, the weather was gorgeous. The small shops near San Nicolas were selling variety of accessories, bags, and clothes. I was attempted to buy some but my bag pack was packed didn’t have enough room.
I personally stayed two more nights in Granda. In second night, there was a Granada CF’s game with Atletico Madrid. I and two other guys, Anthony and Cal, who stayed one more night, went to the game.
San Miguel was another view point that I could see the amazing view of Alhambra and the city of Granada. It was a little bit of hike but it was totally worth it. I would totally recommend that view point for those who are planning to go to Granada.
The trips that I have been to with ICS have been so easy in terms of preparation because ICS organizes everything for us. I hope ICS still takes students to Granda in the future. It’s one of the cities that should be seen by more people. No wonder Granda was the last city that the Arabs gave up.
