Before this trip, I never heard of the city of Granada. My friend arranged the travel plans and I was introduced to this hidden jewel of Spain. The second day in Granada we visited the palaces of Alhambra, the Islamic royal palaces and fortress complex built in the 14th century. As you can see in the photos, the view from the mountain is gorgeous and the palace is full of exotic beauty with all the Islamic architects. There were the fountain of lions, the garden of general life, the filigree walls and the marble columns. I hope you enjoyed the photos, see you on my next post!!
