at the Generalife, summer retreat of the kings
Early morning, after breakfast, went out straight to Alhambra, a wonderful Palace, built during the arab occupation of Spain. (just 10 mins walk from our hostel)

Then the Catholic Kings reconquered Granada and expelled the arabs from Europe. Both Queen of Castille and King of Aragon were buried in Granada. Later another Palace was built inside the Alhambra,

and that is "Charles V Palace" Renaissance Palace and also the gardens called "Generalife" (heneraleefeh)...they are beatiful. These gardens were the summer vacation place for the Nazari Kings during many years..

also all the palace has water elements in it be it a pond, fountain or even a stream. Alhambra is way on top a hill:- a strategic point. thus Great view! The king's name, the palace, reminds me of LOTR. hehe

after spending a day touring the big area, we spent the night walking around the town. eating kebab, wut else? hehe
