If These Walls Could Talk: Tales Of The Alhambra
May 7, 2008
The very best time to visit the Alhambra is midnight.
The tourist hordes have left, the sun has set, and the palace is painted with delicate brushstrokes of light. During the witching hour everything takes on a more mysterious quality, and if you find the right quiet corner, you can take a mental journey through the centuries and listen to the stories that those intricate tiled walls have to tell.
Perhaps you will meet some friendly ghosts? Or you might hear the long lost echoes of the poems carved into almost every surface. You may come across a charming stray cat who has made the palace his home. A wise choice indeed.
