Granada was the next city on my Andalusian swing thru southern Spain, so after a slower train ride from Sevilla, I got to Granada. It is known for the Alhambra, a former Moorish palace that later became the royal palace of the Spanish kings, sitting on the hill overlooking the city. Everyone said I had to go see the Alhambra if I was in Andalucia.

On top of ruins within the Alhambra complex
An old Arab bath house. They were quite the engineers and had hot and cold water running to the baths. They also let the night sky in with these ceiling cut outs.
Ancient streets still have the cobblestone, and are so narrow, but now cars zip through
Narrow alleys of the Albacin, a part of the old city, winding, winding streets.
Flamenco in a cave, the city was carved out of the hills surrounding the Alhambra, frequently business inhabit cave like dwellings.
