    Generalife hill

    Stay for a while to watch Alhambra from the top of the opposite Generalife hill. And you'll feel how the atmosphere of the Middle Ages will get into you. Enjoy yourself: i's worth to come here even only for a minute...
    The 450 hectare Generalife Meadow, which surrounds the Alhambra Historical and Artistic Monuments Complex, was declared a Municipal Park and designated as an officially protected natural area of Andalusia.

    Alhambra -The Washington Irving apartments

    by Jim_Eliason Updated Dec 6, 2013

    The famous American writer, Washington Irving, arrived in Granada to find the Alhambra in ruins and inhabited by squatters. He took up residence here and wrote "tales of the Alhambra", a collection of fiction and legend concerning the palace.

    Taracea (wood inlay)

    by swiftfoot Written Nov 11, 2011

    On your way to the Alhambra, you can enter a shop along Cuesta de Gomeres and watch a taracea artisan at work (www.taracea.com).

    The preparation of the geometrically-designed and multicolored wood material is even more painstaking than the act of assembling the pieces.
