1st of January: New Year's Day in Granada

1st of January

In the morning we headed off to Granada where we would stay for one night. On our way to Granada we made a short stop near La Calahorra, just below Guadix. We stopped in some young Almond treeyards. During this stop we saw a nice Stone Curlew that flushed just next to our car. Furthermore three Black Wheatears were present. We had a great view on the Sierra Nevada with an old castle in front of it.
The place where we stopped.

We arrived in Granada around 2 and checked in in our hotel. In the afternoon we took a walk to some of the miradors overlooking the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada on the background.

And just a random church.

The next morning a cultural visit to the Alhambra was planned. To be continued.
