By Sarah Dowler: Yesterday we toured the Alhambra which s definitely the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The style of the architecture and the gardens were very beautiful and very impressive. The view from the Alhambra was also amazing and one that I wish I could see everyday. The Moorish period’s impact can very much be seen in the Alhambra. The Alhambra has Arabic designs and phrases from the Qur’an carved into the architecture. I very much enjoyed touring the Alhambra especially after learning so much about its history. It initially built by the Muslims which is why there is such a strong Muslim presence in the architecture, but was taken by the Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella, when Granada surrendered to them. Ferdinand and Isabella added more onto the palace to make it more grand. Today was just another relaxed day. I went to my Spanish class in the morning and my Spanish is still improving a lot. Tomorrow we will be touring the city of Sevilla and I am very excited.
