Rooftops of Granada

Chief among the dominant memories of Granada –  which also included enjoying olives, sangria, sunshine and good company while watching World Cup games – is the Alhambra. The palaces, and particularly the gardens, come to mind as places I’d like to visit again.

Given its elevated site, the Alhambra presents you another treat: great views of the region. Here, you see rooftops of the town, including views toward the Royal Chapel of Granada, the resting place of Spain’s Queen Isabella (1451-1504) and King Ferdinand II (1452-1516).

  1. some lovely colours and pictures here.

    IN grade 12 our school choir sang a lovely song in Spanish about Granada. Strangely I still remember part of the song, but my Spanish wouldn’t allow me to try and spell it for you 😦


    • Little wonder there’s (at least one) song about Granada; there’s a great deal of beauty in this old city. Glad these images brought back a nice memory!
