Granada Pinterest

Some of the images on my Granada Pinterest pinboard...

Albaicin Granada from Granada - Cathedral Royal Chapel ***photo by Robert Bovington***Granada  The tower in the photo is the Torre de la Vela. The bell was used by the Arabs to announce disasters. From this privileged position a vast expanse of territory could be seen including the Vega of Granada,. The tower was, therefore, critical for defence and surveillance. Later, the Christians used the bell to strike the hours and to announce the time that farmers could irrigate their fields. The Spanish flag was placed on the tower on January 2, 1492 at 3 pm.
Granada Alhambra - a photo of the patio de los Arrayanes or myrtle patio.
