Trip to the south of Spain

Being December the harshest Swedish month with just 6 hours of daylight. I decided to pass it to a place where Sun will shine. I traveled from Barcelona to Cordoba on AVE, the Spanish high-speed train. It was my first time in the south of the country. So, I wanted to see as much as possible in one week.

Cordoba is a small city. In barely two days I was able to visit the most interesting places.

AVE also covers from Cordoba to Seville. In downtown Seville, I visited Mercado de Triana, Royal Alcazar, and Plaza Espana.

From Seville to Granada I traveled 4 hours by bus. After a typical cold morning at this time of the year, the temperature raised to a comfortable 18 degrees. I walked up Sacromonte and stopped by “Mirador de San Nicolas” to take some pictures. For dinner I went to different tapas places, all of them were good and cheap. They are chepear at least than in Barcelona, my birth town. And the atmosphere was friendly and vivid. My last day, I spent 4 hours in a must-do-visit to The Alhambra.

I fully accomplished my goal of spend time on the Sun and I saw some extraordinary places as a bonus. Barely staying two days per city was enough to see the main landmarks. The next time I go back to the south, I plan to experience Granada with more calm. It is the city that I liked most, even that all of them were fantastic.
