Silla del Moro, Granada

If you have a baby carrier or slightly older kids who are good walkers, check out the mighty Alhambra from a totally different vantage point -Silla del Moro, hillside ruins of a 13th-century castle. On weekends, this involves a zigzag trek up from East end of the River del Darro, where it meets the bottom of the Albaicin. It’s not an easy climb but it’s so worth it as you’ll end up at this ruined fortress, perched above the Alhambra to the east. From here you’ll be able to see the palace grounds spread out below you, as well as the north and west of the city and plains beyond.

    Such a fantastic – and different – view of The Alhambra to be had here. And if you’ve any energy left in you afterwards, continue on the path that leads behind the Alhambra and drop down into the gorgeous Realejo barrio for some well-deserved tapas.
