Alhambra

leave a comment »

Yesterday I spent the day at the Alhambra, the very old Moorish complex, and later an important place for the Catholic Monarchs. 

The place was beautiful and it was peaceful walking around alone, though plenty of other people were there. I took over 800 photos, so I have about 150 decent ones from the day.

I also took some video…
