Southern Spain

(by Jeff)

The Alhambra (Granada)

The Alhambra (in Granada) is a big fortress that was once home to Muslim kings. The palace was incredible, with every square inch of floors, walls, and ceilings was intricately carved. The gardens were also spectacular.


In Jaen, we stayed in a castle that was originally built in 1246. It has been converted into a beautiful hotel. The castle is situated on a hill overlooking the city and the surrounding miles and miles of olive trees.


We spent a few days in Sevilla with Mike and Anna Connelly. Mike and I served together as missionaries in the Basque country. It was a lot of fun to stay with them and to have Anna be our personal tour guide around Sevilla.

Madrid Temple

Our last day in Spain, we were able to attend a session in the Madrid temple. What a great way to end an awesome trip!
