"Sevilla, Granada & The Alhambra" Andalucía by shrimp56

Andalucía Travel Guide: 12,605 reviews and 33,251 photos

I lost my heart in Andalucia!

I've visited Spain twice -- in 1961 I enjoyed Madrid and Toledo. In 1981 I visited a friend who was living in Sevilla while doing her doctoral research. I stayed in Barrio Santa Cruz [the old Jewish quarter], ate tostadas for breakfast and did tapas before anyone had heard much about them on my side of the Atlantic.

The lush green foliage and fruits on the trees belied the water shortage that Sevilla was experiencing that summer. So we drank a lot of bottled water, with gas, spiked with red wine :))))

I've grouped my pictures of Andalucia here as my experience isn't recent and I don't want to pretend to be providing a detailed guide to Sevilla & Granada.
.
A beautiful building in Andalucia --it's either in Granada or Sevilla -- perhaps you can help me?

    Sally, thanks so much for the birthday wishes (and your homepage gift!). The only thing I would be on is that the last photo is taken from La Giralda in Sevilla. ;-)
