Alhambra Gardens



The Alhambra Gardens are located in Granada, Spain.  They are part of a palace that was constructed in the mid 14th century by Moorish rulers who governed Granada.

The gardens are simply delightful.  You'll see roses, oranges, myrtles, English elms, and of course, fountains.  You'll even hear nightingales singing.  Talk about paradise!



The gardens are open daily from 9:30 AM to Dusk.
