I never did find a bus so I took the train to Granada instead rising steadily into the mountains. The city itself is very hilly, colder than Cordoba but with views of snow capped peaks and still orange trees.

I got a bed at a place called Oasis backpackers, explored the city and in the morning made my way up to the Alhambra, which is called a palace but is more like a city with gardens, forts and a lot of courtyards. Most of it dates from the Islamic period and the few later additions come across like graffiti on a Michaelangelo picture by comparison.
