Hard to find words to express the amazement and awe of Alhambra. My heart and spirit are still there, dreaming. Nec plus ultra.

Go there! Take an entire day! Revel in the majesty of bygone eras! Be sure to take comfortable shoes and sunscreen. The audio guide is a must! A truly unforgettable experience!

That's fine, even we didn't check in with the tour but our name was still in their list. It should not be a problem.
