Gran Via Granada from the air

This is the Gran Via de Colon. This could be called Granada High Street or Granada Main Street. You can see the cathedral at the end on the right. At the end is the statue of Cristopher Columbus asking for funds to explore the Americas. At the end on the left is Plaza Nueva which is considered to be the centre of Granada. The wide straightness of the Gran Via is in total contrast to the narrow bendy streets which surround it. This is because at the end of the 19th century they decided to make a straight modern road right into the centre. In doing so they had to destroy dozens of beautiful buildings. It is now an important arterial road which allows the flow of traffic in Granada. Lots of buses go down the Gran Via including the airport bus. This photo was taken from a balloon.
