Cristopher Columbus is highly revered in Granada. It where Queen Isabel, shortly after conquering the last non-a Spanish/non-Catholic city in the Iberian peninsula, funded his first exploration(& future ones) to the Americas. This statue signifies the agreement between the Spanish crown and the Italian navigator. Today, they celebrate him. I'm sure our Knights of Columbus do too.

Spain at dawn. I've seen this eastward view of the rising sun many times and it's as beautiful as the first time I've ever acknowledged God's abundant gifts through an airplane window (i.e., first flight to Kona as a young girl). Funny that today this view takes me back to a different era in my life. I love you, life!

When the Catholics took Granada they destroyed the town's mosque and built this Cathedral. The Moors ruled Andalucia for 780-ish years, before handing over the key to the Alhambra to King Ferdinand in 1492 (about 5+ centuries ago). The history is so rich here and the Muslim influence in the architecture, tiles and subtle designs throughout are absolutely stunning! ❤️ However, this church screams Roman Catholic at the request of the King and emphasizes Mary vice Christ. It took 200 years to complete and stood as a counter-Reformation icon during the rise of Protestantism.

Why not a souk. For the tourist. During Moorish days this was a silk market. Many changes since the reconquista (Catholics drove out the Moors...& well, other non-Catholics). A fire in the 1800s destroyed this marketplace. However, Washington Irving, brought it back to life by romanticizing all of Granada in his works.
