The Alhambra

We spent several hours yesterday walking the grounds of the Alhambra, the palace of the Nasrid Kings. Two things that really stand out for us are the gardens, especially around the Generalife; and the intricate marble and stone work. Walls are rife with designs etched into the stone. The walks are inlaid with mosaics. The gardens of shaped hedges, trees, and no doubt flowers are exquisite. Everywhere water is flowing in streams and fountains.
