We did this on a rainy day in San Sebastian and it was great! Fun workout to the top of the hill that you see from La Concha beach. Easy enough for kids to make it up (we had our 6 year old and a 9 year old with us and they both did great). Lots of folks with dogs as well. Really cool views at the top and a surprisingly good small museum that's worth a quick exploration.

It is an amazing experience walking around the perimeter of the walls. There are some parts you can walk following the allure (wall-walk). The views are so beautiful. And if you love Middle Ages, this is your place to revisit history.

Visitors can walk around the entire perimeter of the walls on the outside. Inside, it is more complicated since many areas around the footings are part of private or public enclosures. The route that offers the best view follows the allure (top of the walls) along a length of around 1700 m and is open to the public. However, the necessary preparation work on the south face has yet to be completed.

Visitors to the city of Ávila don’t always follow the route around the entire perimeter of the walls. This is also logical because it is a "stroll" of almost three kilometres. However, we recommend it. It is worth the effort if you want to appreciate the grandeur of the walls and discover some of the not so well-known places of picturesque beauty.

Beautiful Alhambra walking and light hiking day trip.

We didn't expect there would be a mini hike to get to the tourist area but the short trail had a view great view of the city.

I explored southern Spain in early-November, driving from Madrid, after an epic pilgrimage walking the Camino de Santiago (plug for the Camino: it was one of the best -- if not the best -- experiences of my life). Alhambra became one of my highlights of Spain too, particularly since its Moorish architecture was a first for me. I took a tour that included a shuttle bus pick-up at the fountain square in Granada, but walked back to the city via the route shown here after touring Alhambra and Generalife.

Alhambra is one of those precious gems of the world. I was entranced by the tiled patterns and left wanting to craft something earthy with my hands, inspired by the artisanal decorations throughout. In short: it's a definite must while visiting Spain.

A couple things I would have done differently, knowing what I know now: 1) use Seville as my home base (instead of staying a night in Granada; I much prefer Seville, especially Barrio Santa Cruz) and take one of the many day-tours from Seville to Alhambra, and 2) visit Alcazar of Seville before Alhambra (their architecture are similar, but Alhambra blows Alcazar away. Since I saw Alhambra first, Alcazar was a bit disappointing).
