Views From The Alhambra

One of the main tourist attractions in Granada is The Alhambra, a mid 14th century palace built by the Moorish rulers of the time. Going to the Alhambra in July is a little like going to Disney World in July–it is crazy hot and there are a ton of people with fanny packs. Still, the Alhambra is quite a spectacle and an interesting learning experience. I had a vague to good understanding of Spain’s history from the 1930’s onward . I have been reading more and more about ancient to medieval to18th century history of Spain (truthfully, my history is coming from a mix of Wikipedia, Lonely Planet, and from reading The Alhambra For Children in the bookstore. The latter I found quite informative, by the way) Being able to view the artifacts of Spain’s history while visiting the country is an amazing experience.

Enjoy some incredible views of the Alhambra!
