When J was in university, he spent a semester in Spain studying at la universidad de Granada. So naturally, I had to go visit him because I had always wanted to go to Spain.
It was such an amazing 3 weeks. I fell so in love with Spain- but more specifically the city of Granada. One thing that really captivated my heart was all the beautiful street art. I've been a fan of street art for quite some time, but Granada took my love to a whole other level. Street art was everywhere I turned, every street I walked up, around every corner I turned. And they weren't just spray-painted letters splattered against walls- most of the pieces were pictures people, things, characters, political messages, stories... with so much work and detail put into them.
While J would be in class, I would walk around the city just in awe of how beautiful some of these pieces were.
This is just a very small sampling of the photos I took of the beautiful street art. We hope to return to Granada again some day soon. We miss it!
My friend Lisa also has a post on street art in Granada that you can check out here. Granada is actually where we met-- she was also in J's study abroad program!
How about you- do you like street art? Have you ever been to Spain and/or Granada?
