The Alhambra: Generalife

If the Nasrid Palaces are the Alhambra’s most popular attraction, then the Generalife is, in my opinion, the most beautiful. Built as a summer palace for the Emir‘s of Granada to escape the daily routine of court life, it is a calming oasis of pathways, courtyards, pools, fountains and gardens – a haven of peace and tranquility:

This is my last post on the Alhambra and I only have one more post planned from our trip to Spain in late September…….then I can move on to other subjects!
