POSTCARDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD: GRANADA

“La Spagna ha molto da offrire al visitatore: la sensazione di trovarsi d’improvviso in un altro continente; la novità di paesaggi vasti e selvaggi, le memorie – nell’architettura, nei nomi, nelle usanze – della passata dominazione araba; le austere, splendide chiese; le bianche città andaluse simili a zollette di zucchero sparse su colli spogli; processioni, ferias, zingari, tori focosi, cantanti di flamengo.”

“Spain has much to offer to visitors: the feeling of being suddenly in another continent; the news of extended and wild landscapes, the memories – in architecture, in the names, in the mores – of past Arabic domination; the austere, splendid churches; the white Andalusian cities like sugar cubes scattered on barren hills; processions, ferias, gypsies, fiery bulls, flamengo singers.”

    • Hello Julie, yes, Barcelona (and also Madrid) are big cities, and a bit different from the Spain everyone could imagine. Andalusia is just magical, there are many beautiful historical cities, and in the summer there are many ferias to join… i have wonmderful memories of this trip.
