Updates for Granada and Seville

Jump to last reply

We're at the end of our trip to Southern Spain and I have some up-to-date information for anyone visiting here soon.
Granada:
1. Still no trains from Madrid, Córdoba and Seville. At Antequera, Renfe provides a bus which takes a little over an hour to Granada. From what I saw on the way, the new track is far from finished. The transfer from train to bus is quick and efficient .
2. We were at the Alhambra in the morning last Tuesday and at 8:40, there already weren't any audio guides! I thought that I would be able to depend on the audio guide for the Nasrid Palace and didn't do any reading beforehand. Big mistake- I saw beautiful rooms and courtyards but didn't know what I was looking at. I recommend reading up and if possible find a map for the Nasrid Palace on the Net.
3. I wasn't sure how we would get back to the hotel after the Alhambra night visit because we had the 10 pm slot and the last bus was at 11:09. I didn't have to worry because at this hour there was a fleet of taxis waiting. By the way the entrance at night isn't the main entrance but the entrance nearer to the Nasrid Palace. We didn't know that and had to rush down the road to get to the proper entrance.

Seville:
The eternal question for travelers is where to do your laundry. Well, in Seville there is a chain of dry cleaners called Pressto that does laundry (wash, dry and fold, extra for ironing) by the kilo. We are staying at a hotel near the department store El Cortes Inglese and there's a branch in the basement across from the supermarket. Fast, easy and not expensive ( more than 5 kilos cost 20 euros ). There are other branches all over Seville. There are coin operated laundromats but who wants to waste time watching a washing machine when you could be out touring.

Hope I helped any future travelers to the area.
