  The Patio of Lindaraja
by dlytle

The Mirador of Lindaraja (viewpoint of Lindaraja) is one of the oldest rooms in the Alhambra and from here there used to be a wonderful view of the Garden of Lindaraja, the valley of the Darro and El Albaicin. But all that was before the rooms built by Carlos V blocked the view to the garden. Now there is just a pretty little garden area called the Patio of Lindaraja.

In the garden there are cypresses, acacias, orange trees and box bushes surrounding the big central marble fountain. The fountain's border is decorated with a poem, much like the fountain of the Patio of the Lions. The fountain was made in 1626 with the big basin that was at that time in the Patio of the Gilded Room between the Mexuar and Comares Palace.

Although I had seen so many beautiful areas of Alhambra already, I found this little garden to be very refreshing and peaceful to visit after our long wanderings through the Nasrid Palaces.
