A View To Savor

Intoxicating views out over the Alhambra await those willing to brave this moderate up-hill hike. The myriad of cafes and restaurants that populate this hilltop plaza beckon weary travelers to a lazy mid-afternoon siesta (which is the Spanish way, after all). Nurse a cappuccino or a carafe of Spanish wine with that ubiquitous plate of tapas. Take in the view of the Alhambra, the old Moorish palace and castle. Once you've had your fill of the heavenly view (which may be a while), heed the siren call of all the interesting shops in the vicinity. Be sure to wear some comfortable walking shoes, as the path is lined with river stones.
