My latest post


refers to an article in Granada Hoy saying that Granada is the tourist destination in Spain that has the highest density of tourists in relation to its permanent population and size. Yet in Granada there is no sign of the sort of hostility towards tourists that we see in Barcelona, where the tourist density is slightly lower.

Could it be that Granadinos, as Andalusians, are simply more hospitable than Catalans?


A clue to the answer to this question can be seen in the picture immediately below.
