The fruits of Granada

Granada was the last city occupied by Muslims and re-conquered by Isabel and Ferdinand, resulting in the home of their tombs.

We made a visit to the Capilla Real, which is their burial ground where a monument lays above their tombs. Most important, in remembrance of the great defeat, the Crown placed the symbol of a Granada at the bottom of the shield, which can be seen on Spain’s flag.

We had a loooooong bus ride back to Madrid. After settling back into my Senora’s house I realized how comfortable I am getting here and how much I missed my new home.
