Next stop on the itinerary is Granada. Caught a bus from Malaga to Granada. Buses leave every hour and it a 1 hr trip. You can buy tickets from the bus terminal or purchase in advance at http://www.alsa.es. The buses are very punctual, more so than flights.
Granada is famous for the Alhambra which is a palace with Islamic roots and is a popular tourist attraction. Definitely recommend buying tickets on the day you book your flights. The tickets are sold out months in advance.
Spent the first day touring the market and watching the Alhambra light up during sunset.
