The palace sits on top of the city of Granada and the view is spectacular. The Alhambra was built in the 13th century, according to Paolo our tour guide.
These were water ducts used to move water from the gardens to the palace.
Looking out at Granada from inside the palace. Architecture was breathtaking.
A small garden in a courtyard inside the palace.
From my journal:
"Everything is so green right now now and wildflowers galore growing on the side of the road...wild mustard with bright yellow flowers and wild red poppies, tinier than the poppies in the northeast U.S. So pretty. I wish we could have stopped and taken some pictures."
