A couple of weeks ago we took some time off and went up to see the Alhambra in Granada. It was the last stronghold of the Moors who were driven out of Spain in 1492.
Roy and I standing in the gardens. We were too late to get tickets to the palace so we went through the gardens instead.
It took several years to build this complex and several Moorish kings.
The gardens were just beautiful and we really enjoyed our walk through the gardens, which took about 2 hours.
This is the beautiful wisteria with Elder Hunt and Pam Young who joined us while she was visiting in Spain from living and helping in Mali, Africa.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of the beautiful rose, and they weren't all in bloom yet.
One thing that really fascinated me were the walkways in the gardens that were made of different stones.

Sorry but I took lots of pictures of the ground with all the designs in the walkways.
I'm not sure I would have the patience to do this work.

Spain is a wonderful place to visit and a wonderful place for missionary work, which is progressing nicely here in Spain. It might not be going as fast as other countries, but it is still growing. We now have our allotment of missionaries and they are working hard and miracles are taking place. We love the work here and hope we are helping the work progress.
