The Alhambra


                         

View of The Alhambra fom the gypsy caves.

                        

One of the courtyards in one of the palaces


                         

Once again in the right place at the right time, when this high school choral group took advantage of the acoustics in this courtyard to hush and captivate the crowd with their heavenly voices.

A lot of architectural detail is still intact.       

                         


                         


                  

And the tile is still vibrant.

                         


 
A juxtaposition of patterns

                           

And styles.




                        

A secret garden, one of many in a maze and one of many gardens on the grounds.



                  


.                        


                         

Difficult to capture the depth of the ceilings. A number of the rooms had domes like this.

        

Inlaid mosaic ceilings

                         


                 

Views of Grenada below and surrounding hillsides.
