City Sketches: Paris, Marseille, Aix, Barcelona and Madrid.

During my trip to France and Spain, I have taken the time to sketch the places and things that I liked. I have posted this on Instagram and I have compiled it all here to show my sketches during my travel.

Alhambra and the town of Granada, Spain

This charming little town of Granada situated in the Southern part of Spain is a lush town surrounded by vineyard. It was summer when I went there but the old charm of the place is just wonderful. The town is tucked in with the view of Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is the grandest place to see in Granada. This place is made up of Islamic architecture and have been well maintained.

Alhambra is easily accessible by local buses but if you are the adventurous type, you may hike up from center of the town. Despite the number of tourists coming here, the center of the town does not look like it gets very crowded from any time of the day. I love how laid back the whole town feels like even though there is an existence of a lot of modern establishments. Granada, or Pomegranate, or grenade if I will translate it from my language, is a place I would definitely enjoy to retire with a bottle of red wine on my hand.
