Travel Blogs from Granada
The drive to Granada from Seville is destined to be uneventful. It is a three hour drive and we have decided that there should be no detours. Whilst we are not particularly following our "Back Roads of Spain" book of driving itineraries, it has come in handy when our original planned route has crossed over into their highly regarded digressions …
