Today is Friday, July 17. We started the day with a mass in a beautiful church in Granada with our amazing Father Scott Lewis.
And then we visited Alhambra, the last and greatest Moorish palace, one of Europe’s top tourist attractions. 8000 tourists visit this place everyday.
Alhambra’s Islamic palaces, as we know them today, were built for the last Muslim emirs in Spain and the court of the Nasrid dynasty. After the conquest of Granada by the Reyes Católicos (“Catholic Monarchs”) in 1492, some portions were used by Christian rulers.
It is a magnificent complex of buildings and gardens. I would like to invite you on a tour of Alhambra. First play this music and than look at the pictures:
