One Word Sunday: Famous

Debbie, over at ‘Travel With Intent’ has a ‘One Word Sunday’ challenge. This week’s subject must be ‘Famous’.

I’ve chosen the famous Alhambra, a palace and fortress complex located in Granada. The name Alhambra means ‘the red castle’ and it’s the second most visited site in Europe.

This courtyard is known as ‘The Court Of The Myrtles’.

It was such a pleasure to wander around the many enchanting gardens and fountains.

My enduring memory is of a very elegant and inviting place.

This magnificent complex also has a breathtaking view over the whole city.

  2. Thank you for the gorgeous reminders (photos) of such a beautiful place. I like how you described it as an elegant and inviting place. That description, I believe, is highlighted by the differences between the Alhambra and the palace of Charles V right next to it.

  3. My enduring memory of Alhambra…apart from the beauty of architecture and the size and variety of the gardens, was the intense heat. The tricks they played with water to cool down the palace when it was built were very welcome several centuries later !

  4. What a fabulous place… I’m looking at it on a hot day here, and the buildings, greenery, and water are really designed to keep things cool. .. I’m cooling down already!

  5. It looks absolutely stunning, Sylvia! Sadly, I doubt I’ll get there now….. But I have seen the Real Alcazar in Seville, and the Mezquita in CΓ³rdoba
