On Saturday 31 August I woke up with a head full of cold (probably from being freezing cold for so long after La Tomatina). Feeling a little rough we headed back into town to visit the Alhambra. This is a Moorish palace complex with some of the most amazing gardens I have seen. They tried to create their idea of paradise on earth here. Some of the highlights in the Nasrid ...
