Black & White - The Alhambra

These photos were taken at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

The Patio of the Lions is probably the most famous place in the Alhambra. It is so called because of the twelve lions that throw jets of water and which are part of the fountain in the middle of the patio.

There were roses in the gardens

and snow on the distant mountains.

How beautiful! The mark the Moors left on Spain is quite strong.

I love these photos Jean. I want to see everyone of your Alhambra pics and if you have a couple of days, I'll show you the 700+ I took while there. One of the loveliest places on earth.
