After 4 days in Madrid, we headed south to Granada. This is what much of
the countryside looked like on the journey, as we headed through Andalucia.
Olive trees as far as the eye could see.

Once we arrived, we stayed in the Arab quarter, which turned out to be a great choice. The old part of Granada is really charming. We were walking distance to the Alhambra, which of course is the main attraction in town. After dark, we were close to the nightlife.

^the best pita sandwich I ever tasted. Down the street was the best falafel.

The Nasrid Palace was for me the most exquisite part of the hilltop complex.

Great stuff as usual, MG.

The Alhambra is absolutely one of the architectural wonders of the world.

Thanks lofter, the Alhambra blew me away. Definitely a wonder. I truly enjoyed the time spent in Granada.

Superb photography.

Camera helps, so does the subject, but most important of all is the eye. When eye meets an interesting topic and the right setting you get these.

Granada is indeed a beautiful place and the sun can bleach out the photographic detail at times. The colour saturated film helps but look at those exquisite compositions throughout.
