I was browsing through some folders here today and found some very beautiful photos taken in our garden this autumn, means you don’t need to go half around the world to take some nice photos. Scenes we see everyday gets on our blind spot, and we ignore tings we stare at every day. Like Henry David Thoreau said: “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see”.
When we made our road trip trough Southern Spain last winter, we didn’t plan it very carefully, but Ronda was one of the places that was a sure stop along the way. It was also one of those places we was really eager to make a blog post about, but somehow it has taken us many months to come to this point that its ready.
Ronda is famous for the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain (Plaza de Toros de Ronda), witch is actually open to the public. The other tings are the three bridges and the 100 meter deep canyon that is cutting the city into two halves. There are several ways to get down to the water level in the bottom of the canyon.
The Palacio de Generalife sits across the ravine from Alhambra, and was earlier connected with a walkway. Generalife was built in the 13th century as a summer palace and has been redesigned and rebuilt several times through the years.
As promised in the posts about Alhambra, here are our photos from Generalife. Visiting the gardens in February may not justify the full beauty the garden in full bloom though.
Here is the final set of photos from Alhambra.
We don’t like too many photos in one post, so here are some more from Alhambra.
Alhambra was a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We visited the site in February and even it was off season, the place was crowded with people making it a challenge to take good overview photos. Even so it’s hard to choose between those we think look cool, and feel the need to divide them into three parts (not including the Generalife area, which will have its own post later).
The full name is “The Museu Paulista of the University of São Paulo/Museu Paulista da Universidade de São Paulo”, but are commonly called Museu do Ipiranga or simply Museu Paulista. The building was built as a memorial of the declaration of independence and it was opened as a museum in 1895. The museum has a collection of more than 125 000 items mostly from the São Paulo region, but also from rest of Brazil.
Unfortunately we where not allowed to take photos inside.
