Alhambra - Granada

The most impressive monument we've ever seen

overcast 12 °C

This morning we headed up to the mighty Alhambra.
It was built by the Moors c. 1230 AD where they stayed until they were forced out by Christians in 1492.
To see something in such good condition, with such intricate Islamic stone carvings, and so old was amazing. The intricacy reminded me of some of the temples you see in Cambodia (Angor Wat) or Thailand.

I attach a selection of photos as words don't do it justice - well worth the €13 admission.
