... from UK. We travelled around half an hour out of Granada along the base of Sierra Nevada (huge mountain where they ski for around 5 months of the year) was amazing landscape with the white washed villages dotted along the way and the steep cliffs of the mountain with quarries and farmland up as far as possible.

Over the centuries there have been repairs to buildings and the addition of new ones. The Islamic décor has been retained throughout most of the early buildings although the mosque, having been converted to a church was eventually replaced when it ...
