Washington Irving was there in the 1820s; I’ll be in Granada at the Alhambra at the end of April for the Louis Round Wilson Knowledge Academy meetings. All kinds of good folks have recommended Irving’s book to me (thanks Terry and Ismael). I’m about 100 pages into the 1851 facsimile edition and am enjoying Irving’s adventures and storytelling immensely. What a treat it will be to be see the Alhambra now over 150 years after Irving’s visit.
