These are some great photos I found on the Internet. They give an idea of the feel and magic of the city. This is right in the city center.
This river separates the old part of the city to the north from the newer section to the south. Our regular bus stop was just to the right.
During the hottest part of the year these large pieces of cloth are hung above a number of the narrow streets in the old part of the city.
This is a view of the old city from the Alhambra. It really is that wonderful.
It is possible to visit the Alhambra at night during the summer. It must be as magical as it looks in the photo.
A very popular TV series about Isabel and Fernando (the “Catholic Monarchs”) is now in its third season. It obviously includes the Reconquest. The monarchs are buried together in a crypt behind the cathedral. Judging from the caskets, they were quite small.
