The Alhambra continues

It's easy to become overwhelmed with the detail at the Alhambra, as every surface seems to be encrusted with decoration and text, and features seem to repeat without being the same. There are fountains small...

...and fountains large

...doorways and windows

...ceilings and column capitals

 ...tile and decorative text banding

...nooks and crannies

...view points


The Wine Gate

Court of Madraza

Oh, and the room Washington Irving camped out in for his book "Tales of the Alhambra" - positively spare by comparison with the rest of the Alhambra
