Visiting Tips
Shopping in Granada
Plaza Bib-Ramblla

Photo Above - The Patio de los Leones (an inscription/poem within the fountain describes how the presence of the sultan tamed the appearance of lions.)
Enter the doorway, pass the lion fountain, and enter a room of marvelously detailed stucco forms done in the Moorish tradition.
Photos to left, right and below right - showing some of the stucco detail from a room in the Patio de los Leones

Earlier in the day water glistens from the patio's floor, providing a reflecting surface in the bright sunlight.
These photos cannot begin to convey the splendors of the Palacios Nazaries.
