Most people make the trip to Granada in Spain to visit the Alhambra, a spectacular castle still in the Moorish style, nothing else can show what the Moors did in Spain as much as this place. Part of it was under reconstruction and I missed seeing the famous Lion fountain, but it was still a pleasure to visit and wonder what it would have been like to live or visit here.
A photo can’t do the architecture justice. It is graceful, full of sculptured walls and arches and that look that people love to copy into their own homes.
Much of it is opened to the outdoors.

This was in Cordoba at one of the street celebrations. I kept wanting to buy a beautiful Spanish shawl or fan but wasn’t sure what I would do with one when I got it home so passed.
