Granada is the only place to ever be voted by you, twice (and in a row), the Best City to Visit. With the 2019 contest nominations coming up in February (here’s where to enter your city), I wanted to show you all the intangible reasons Granada, Spain has deserved the top spot for the past two years. For many travelers, Granada tends to be a day trip from nearby Seville or Cordoba, but as you’ll see in video above, that’s how they miss the best parts of southern Spain.

Wow, nice video Anil. Can you suggest a one day tour in Granada?
Thanks – are you looking for a general city tour for a day trip or a shorter tour during a longer stay? For the latter, here’s a post by my friend and blogger Jessie, who recommends a tapas tour:
I was underwhelmed, greatly so, by Granada. The central, old areas below the Al Hambra are attractive, but utterly dedicated to tourism. Everything pivots around the Al Hambra. This is a site that the Spanish themselves abused and neglected for centuries, but are now milking for all it is worth. Admission to the Al Hambra is about as commercially regulated as is possible. Just getting an admission ticket to the palace is a MONTHS long venture. There is no walking up and buying a ticket.
I found Sevilla far more “authentic” as a Spanish city. More friendly, less commercialized and the sites far more accessable.
