There was a book fair on at the city and the Cuesta was lined with book stalls all the way down to the Puerta Real.
In the Plaza Capillo children were amusing themselves with colourful balloons.
I love the colourful facades of the beautiful old buildings along Calle Reyes Catolicos.
Although the stores are modern the classical buildings have been beautifully preserved.
The Plaza Cuchilleros also has some fine old buildings.
Then I reached the Plaza Nueva. Instead of the usual shot of Santa Ana Church I turned around and took this photo looking the other way. I think the young people moving around on the two wheeled vehicles are offering tours to the holidaymakers.
Outside Santa Ana Church these girls were enjoying a food break and concentrating very much on the task in hand rather than their beautiful surroundings.
As usual tourists were strolling along the Carretera del Darro. This violinist was among many street entertainers busking for a little money.
The Paseo Padre Manjon was full of life and colour too.
Particularly pretty were the trees with the deep pink blossom but I am not sure of their name.
Back towards the centre I always like to walk down this street which is lined with Arabic shops and tea rooms.
The insides are often illuminated by the colourful lanterns they have for sale.
Finally at 1400 I reached the Plaza Bib Rambla when it had started to cloud over. This artist had obviously started his work earlier in the day when the sky was a clear blue.
