Wonderful views. I was only scrolling faster at the "modern" building part, apart from a few of them they look (as uninteresting) like anywhere else. But the typical, mostly old architecture is great and seems to be well preserved. Thanks for these pictures of a rather unknown but very beautiful city.



This looks quite interesting:

This is another great post of old towns. I have to admit that I am intrigued by the beauty and architecture of the city.

Some places in Granada are nice, but most of the city is really ugly, it's one of the cities with the highest levels of noise of the world, so it's bad for living there, but great to visit as a tourist.

Here you have a pano, the city centre is in the left:

And here's a pano where you see how (ugly) it is the district where a large proportion of the population lives:
