The Alhmabra: Gardens


I will go back to Granada, just to go back to the Alhambra gardens. 
We only had 30 minutes between the time we arrived to the Alhambra and our reservation time to tour the palace. 
By the time we were done touring the palace it was almost dark and everything was closing. 
But oh my gosh those 30 minutes were beautiful!
Everything was so symmetrical and more beautiful around every corner!

*So when visiting The Alhambra arrive much much earlier than your scheduled palace reservation time.
I could easily have spent 2 hours taking pictures just in the gardens.

Looks stunning! When I was in Spain I wasn't able to make it to Granada and the Alhambra, but it's at the top of my list for next time. Hope you and your Mom are having a blast!

I think we were there about 2 hours before our palace time - I would have even stayed longer if I could have. I'd love to have a cup of tea and sit on a bench in a quiet area just to soak it all in!
