There is a bootsale in Almuñecar on the coast every Sunday morning and another in Salobreña the first Saturday of the month.

Alhambra

Granada

The Alhambra palace and fortress is one of the most famous buildings in Andalucia. Located in the nearby city of Granada, its first historical references arose during the war between the Arabs and Muladies in the 800s, and it has been occupied by Moors, Arabs and Christian rulers since. It has been developed into a complex over the centuries which incorporates a Renaissance palace, Muslim court and Moorish fortress. Today it is a museum exhibiting Islamic architecture tthat has influenced many 19th and 20th century interpretations of the building.
