Friday evening we arrived in Granada and got situated in our hotel. We ate an early dinner and many of the kids decided to watch the Spain World Cup game afterward. We got up early Saturday morning and took the bus to La Alhambra. The weather was perfect, cool and breezy. We spent several hours exploring the grounds and the palace. Unfortunately, the Patio of the Lions is still undergoing renovations. This is truly a shame because it is one of the most beautiful parts of the palace. We did see a couple of the lions on display in the museum, but they are out of context. Next we had a long lunch break before continuing our sightseeing. We visited the Cathedral and the Capilla Real, Fernando and Isabel are entombed there. By this time, the kids were starting to drag. We boarded the bus and headed for home, arriving in Ciudad Real around 9:30 pm. Hopefully everyone is resting up today!
The group photo and the photo of the teachers were actually taken next to the Roman Bridge in Córdoba. You can also see the Mezquita in the background. The other photo is the Alhambra. With regard to the photos, I wish my blogging skills were a bit better!
