It is considered human heritage. Moreover, it is the most characteristic monument of the city as well as one of the most visited in Spain.

It is an Arabic and spectacular building. The set is a remarkable construction: no facade, no center, no a particular axis. Buildings, towers, palaces, courtyards and gardens are happening naturally.

-From the street we can appreciate the door of these wonderful and well-conserved Arabic baths from the XIth century, the “bañuelo” has been also known as "Aammim Alyawza" (Baños del Nogal). It’s close to “La Alhambra”.-“El Bañuelo” from Granada is one of the few places which could survive after the destruction of the Catholic Monarchs because it had the same importance for Christians as brothels.

-In 1918 it was declared National Monument and it was restored by the architect Torres Balbás 
-Its ground is rectangular and it has concrete walls, and covering the different rooms there are brick baults with octagonal skylights by start shape to illuminate them. 

It is a mountain range located in the penibetic massif system and which reaches the provinces of Granada and Almeria. -Sierra Nevada is worldwide well-known due to the ski-resort it possesses. Moreover, you can enjoy the amazing views while you practice sports or enjoy the nature.
On the one hand, as for the ski-resort, ski is not the only sport you can practice. For instance, the most experienced skiers can go snowboarding, mountain bike and even paragliding over the mountains. 
On the other hand, you can enjoy the nature by going down through cliffs and rivers. That said, some people try to get to the highest peak in Spain, the “Mulhacén” (3482m), through a touristic route. Therefore, you would be able to make out the African continent and lots of endemic species.


Barcelona is one of the most important cities in Spain, where you can find different monuments and attractive places, such as, “La Sagrada Familia”, “La Pedredera” and “Las Ramblas”:
The “Sagrada familia” is a monumental church which was started to be built in 1882 by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar (1828-1901). At the end, in 1883, Gaudí continued the work until his dead in 1926. After that, several architects have also continued the project bearing in mind the original idea by Gaudí.

The superb building is located in the center of Barcelona, ​​and over the years has become one of the most universal signs of identity of the city and the country. Every year it is visited by millions of people. 

Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera’ was also built by Antonio Gaudí. Due to its heritage value it has received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value.
The Secret Pedrera is an intimate and highly sensory

This is the place where people from Barcelona used to meet. Nowadays, you will see mostly foreigners along the Ramblas.

Child of Light / The Game Awards 2014

Hi, Daniel here. I have been recently playing a game and I have achieved to finish it, enjoying it a lot. I am talking about UbiArt's franchise Child of Light. Also I would like to make a list of the several winners of The Video Game Awards 2014. So, here we go:

Child of Light is a JRPG-ish, turn-based combat, graphical adventure fairy tale which I enjoyed a lot: every single minute I played. It makes us play as the daughter of an archduke of Austria. After the Holy Week celebrations, she falls ill and dies, but then she resurrects in a fantasy world. There she finds new friends, such as Igniculus, a “firefly”, or so she thinks it is. Eventually, the story ends in a dramatic climax, with an epic boss fight, and I think no one will regret to have played the game.
The turn-based combat system is something many people dislike. I was one of them. But Child of Light focus this concept in a different way. You can move Igniculus and make him bright to blind your enemies, and so slow them; or rather make it bright over your allies to heal them. Moreover, you can interrupt enemies attacks by attacking them when they are casting their abilities. The combination of all this mechanics make the combat system in this game very dynamic, and enjoyable no matter if you like turn-based combat or not.
I think it's also important to say that all the dialogues are in verse. I know some people are not keen of that, but I didn't dislike it.

  • Gripping and beautiful story.
  • Gorgeous art style.
  • Many characters, that make variety in terms of combat.
  • Many kinds of enemies.
  • A vastly dynamic combat, even though it being turn-based.
  • Side-quests (which is a “pro” taking into account that this game is about 10h of play).
PROS/CONS (you can like them, you can not):
  • All the dialogues are written in verse.
  • It is a fairy-tale story.

  • It is too short for its quality.
  • Even if you like verses, it makes understanding the main thread of the story very difficult.
  • In some computers (like mine) it is bad optimized, and you can do nothing to improve its performance.

As many of you may know, The Game Awards have been celebrated. Even though I don't like most of the winners, here it is a list with the most remarkable awards:

  • Game of the Year & Best Role-Playing Game: Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Best Narrative: Valiant Hearts: the Great War. (yay!)
  • Best Action/Adventure: Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor.
  • Best Fighting game: Super Smash Bros. WiiU
  • Best Sports/Racing & Best Family game: Mario Kart 8.
  • Best Online Experience & Best Soundtrack/Score: Destiny.
  • Developer of the Year: Nintendo.

Valiant Hearts: the Great War is the one I liked most and, so, I think it is the one which deserved the most its award.

What about YOU? What game do you think it deserves the most its award? What game would you include in the list?
