According to Rough Guide, Alhambra in Granada is: “the most exciting, sensual and romantic monument in Europe”. They certainly are not afraid to oversell.
Just getting tickets was exciting already, as there is exactly 6,600 people allowed to enter in a day. Are we gonna make it? Morning, or the afternoon session? Are there free time slots to see the Palacios Nazaries? What we have also found amusing is that Baby needs his own ticket, even if carried in a baby carrier and his entry is for free.
We were trying to keep Baby up until our turn to enter the best part of Alhambra, Palacios Nazaries. Even if he will not remember, soaking the atmosphere of the most sensual monument surely must leave an impact. We almost made it. As we were about to enter, Baby fell asleep. And somewhere out there was a tourist, for whom there was no ticket left. Shame.
We, on the other hand, enjoyed every bit of it. Granada, with its cobbled little streets, street musicians, and Alhambra, is worth a visit.
PS: if you were wondering, yes. Baby woke up the minute we left the Palacios Nazaries.
