A truly memorable experience that I would highly recommend, is a visit to the Alhambra in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. The palace – fortress was originally constructed in 889 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its filigree arabesques are awe-inspiring and the gardens with water features, labyrinths and flowers in brilliant colour combinations is an inspiration to all and especially to those with a gardener’s eye.
