Fascinating Architecture

There are architectural gems in just about every place we’ve ever visited and each is special in their own ways. Trying to decide which location to feature as part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Architecture seemed a daunting task. After careful consideration, we decided on Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The fact that it is an amalgamation of styles throughout its history, but that the Islamic architecture remained the centerpiece, even when occupied by Spanish royalty, truly makes this place special. Despite the grand size of the palace and grounds, the real beauty is in the intricate details found throughout Alhambra.

  4. Oh, Donna & Peter, I am so jealous. When Maggie and I visited Granada, there was a two-day public service strike, so we couldn’t enter the Alhambra. Lucky you!
