Alhambra Palace

After a bit of an absence on the blog front it's time for me to share some of the beautiful images from a summer trip to Spain and Portugal. We toured Barcelona, Granada, Madrid and Lisbon and of course upon our return everyone asked "what was your favorite city?" The truth is that I loved them all for different reasons but Granada did hold a special place in my heart. It's a smaller city with so much history. There were points when I turned a corner and literally felt like I had gone back in time. Granada is a city of kings and monuments with it's largest attraction being the Alhambra Palace. I have memories of being here as a child and had always anticipated the day when I would return. It was even better the second time around. Everywhere I looked there were beautiful and ornate patterns and colors all influenced by Moorish design.
