Rick and I caught the bus into Granada and walked up the way a little and caught another bus to the Alhambra. All this only took an hour or so but by then the place was pretty well filled with tourists. Such a popular spot. We booked our ticket in at the caravan park and got a senior discount, however when it came to pick up the ticket at Alhambra we were quickly informed that senior discounts only apply to residents of the EU. Not fair and total discrimination I felt. This has been the first place where this applied to, so we have not done too bad so far. We had to pay an extra 4 euros each, which we did. This ticket entitled us to enter any building and all of the gardens. You realy need more than one day to see it all but I can tell you we gave it a bloody good try. Fatique won the battle in the end, so we hopped back on the bus to take us into Granada and bought a drink before we caught the bus back to the caravan park.
Sadly we will be moving on again tomorrow, this has been a lovely visit here and if you ever come this far down do not miss Granada and the Sierrs Nevada mountains and valley.
We had a very interesting day today, exhausted but feeling good.
