Street Art Granada

Granada is a paradoxical city where grit and grandiosity often sit side by side. Most people come here to see the Alhambra, but the city also hides a surrealistic street art scene.Read more: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/spain/travel-tips-and-articles/granadas-street-art#ixzz3HxSuRNOw

Every conscientious visitor can’t forget about its sun-bathed squares and winding cobbled-stone streets of the Moorish medieval district of Albayzín, whose miradors (viewing points) offer truly amazing perspectives of the city, and street art artist use this pleaces like inspiration.

Their thoughtful and whimsical murals overlaid with clever, sometimes witty aphorisms written in Spanish are – in the view of many locals – more of an inspiration than an eyesore. They also play a key role in keeping Granada innovative and edgy.

 Granada’s street art is inspiring, attractive and nicely stands in opposition to the more traditional face of the city.
