The Alhambra


Well I got there - and was totally overwhelmed! Brenda had booked tickets for 9am- 2pm so we stayed in Granada overnight to be there in time - if you miss your allotted time, you don't get in. It was FREEZING that time in the morning with frost on the cars. We had planned to start with the Nasrid Palaces and then explore further. However, I was so blown away by the whole astounding experience, the Nasrid Palaces were all I could take in. I will just have to go back . .  again . . .  and again . . .  . . .  and  . .  again!!!! I will just load the images - they don't need words to describe them. Not being able to use flash I couldn't get a lot of the shots I wanted, But I am very happy with the several hundred I took. Here is a selection -





















 . . . . so, you can see, I have enough inspiration to last for the rest of my life. Truly wonderful . . . . .

  3. I haven't been to the Alhambra, but The Alcázar of Seville was the place that I walked into and cried, it was so beautiful. It isn't as well known and we didn't have to book to go in, we could even find quiet corners with no-one around. I think you would love it :)
