Don't be put off by the number of tour groups. They can be irritating but the good news is that they rarely have time to actually visit anything. The Mesquita, the Alcazar, the House of the Patios etc can all be visited fairly hassle free.

The tapas and tortilla de patatas are wonderful. Bar Moriles was recommended to us by a friendly taxi driver and we ate there three times in two days. (There are two Bar Moriles beside each other and this was the one on the corner at tables on the footpath). Well worth checking out.

We accessed this incredible site, free, at 9am. The harmony and beauty of the merging of Moorish and Gothic architecture is awe- inspiring. A balm to the senses.

The mosque cathedral was amazing and loved the Jewish quarter with tiny cobbled streets. Happen upon a restaurant that had free traditional flamenco dancing with classical guitarist and canta singer, was the icing on the cake for me!

The Mezquita is absolutely mesmerizing with 850 red and blue columns topped with double arches. The Alcazar offers good views from atop this fortress as well as a quiet, pretty garden where you can get away from the maddening crowds.

Obviously, the old Jewish Quarter but dive down the backstreets off the main tourist routes and towards the Archaelogical Museum.

There is a square very close to this hotel for tapas and good local restaurants. Ask the helpful reception! Also vist the new tourist info in front of the cathedral for maps and helpful suggestions.

Lovely tapas bar near Don Paula with tables and chairs shaded by trees serving selection of food also vegeterian and vegan, as well as very refreshing Alhambra lager and very friendly staff. Also Don Pepe for brunch of freshly squeezed orange juice, churrios, tostadas etc...

It is not a big city, so if you have two nights booked you will be able to see most of it. Getting up early pays off as most of the places have free entry in he morning and you can avoid standing in queues and meeting organised groups of tourists.

Generally cheaper for tourist items than Seville. Local artists and jewellers setup shop in the areas around the Mezquita. Take a stroll towards and you may find little gems like Califa jewellers

The mosque, the architecture was amazing, its a tragedy that the cathedral was built into the middle of this wonderful building.
