Spring Time is the answer to the question, When to visit Granada Spain?
I’m referring to the months of April, May and Early June.
Why So? I hear you ask.
When you can smell the Roses is when to Visit Granada
The garden beds that line the streets of the central district, overflow with rosy red identical flowers.
Spring is when the Albaicin District is at it’s best.
Geraniums splash themselves shamelessly against the white washed walls of the Albaicin, the old Moorish quarter on the hill.
The thought of climbing the maze of streets on Albaicin hill in Summer makes me feel weak at the knees. Summer heat reflecting off the gorgeous white washed homes known as Carmen, would be a nightmare. Carmens are free standing houses surrounded by tall walls hiding them from the street. Within is traditionally a garden or orchard. Sometimes a door will be left ajar offering a glimpse.
In Springtime however, the Albaicin is a leisurely stroll full of photographing, exploring shops and drinking coffee at little bars.
When Temperatures are a pleasant 25 degrees is when to visit Granada
And just when it gets a little too hot, a blissful coolness drifts down from the snow capped Sierra Nevadas.
Spring is the perfect time to Visit the ALHAMBRA.
Rest a while on an old stone wall within her fortifications, soaking up sun and coffee, before entering the delicious coolness of her Moorish Palaces. You won’t be hot or cold and will really enjoy your time in this amazing 14th Century Moorish Palace on a hill.
As an extra bonus, the gardens of the Alhambra’s Generalife garden will be blooming gloriously.
The Perfect time for Tapas
Sitting in the Spring sunshine, savouring cold drinks and accompanying tapas, while people watching in the plaza is one of life’s pleasures. Add it to your list.
Enjoy Endless Blue Skies
Watch vapour trails in the sky like an enormous game of join the numbers.
Yes – Spring Time is the ultimate in when to visit Granada Spain.
