I wandered lonely as a cloud, that floats on high o’er the Sierra Nevada. When all at once I saw a crowd, a host of fantastic landscape art. Beside the fuente, scenes of Granada. In no hurry on, going nowhere.

A few months ago, one Sunday afternoon, I happened to stumble across one of the city’s most recognised artists at work on the streets of Granada.

I decided to stick around for awhile and with the (inadequate) digital camera that I had on me I tried to capture what I was witnessing.

This piece, I like to call Lady Violet. I am not sure what el nino de las pinturas calls it, but I guess I will have to ask him next time I catch him in action. One thing is for sure it is definitely a great addition to some fantastic Graffiti around Granada.

You will notice pretty quickly that the local Granadinos really do not like the wet weather and the city in general will be considerably quieter, with many sitting at home waiting for the rain to pass.

What to do in Granada when it rains:

Some more recent suggestions for Granada in the rain by @piccavey

Hot tea in a traditional tetería. The GI tea house of choice would certainly be Kasbah. For more on teahouses check out this article: Teterías in Granada

Eat estofado (stew), sounds like a good idea, or even somewhere that does a nice soup. Casa Lopez Correa would be close to top of my list. Review here

 

A new suggestion in from Sarah. Grilled tapas and the famous pork rotissiere at la Abadía. You can discover it here. Review la Abadía.

Bowling or cinema in Kineopolis. Also a good idea. Easier to get there by car, but the number 9 bus also goes there from Gran Vía.
