Pt 3: Granada

After 6 long and relaxing days in Nerja we drove to Grenada, the moorish capital of Spain. We stayed at an incredible hotel that had previously been a palace. We were upgraded to the grand suite on the top floor, and I am serious when I say I could have been there all day long. The entire palace has been renovated in a fusion of Arab and minimalistic design.

Thanks Daniel C:_MG_2290-2_MG_2296 _MG_2299 _MG_2306 Alhambra_Granada_desde_AlbaicinThe Alhambra seen from afar is a truly spectacular sight. Its multitude of palaces and gardens form a structure that looks like one single palace. Its also breathtaking to imagine the history that has happened inside its walls.  The Alhambra was a palace, a fortress and a citadel; the residence of the Nasrid Sultans and top government officials, court servants and the royal guard. In 1492 the Spanish Monarchy, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand conquered the city through encirclement.
