Spain…. Alhambra of the Moors, Granada
Couldn’t resist revisiting Alhambra of the Moors with its many Palaces. Today we visit the Generalife Palace and the Patio of the Irrigation Ditch. We all know the vital need for water, bringer of life. But here at Alhambra I discovered the ingenious use of moving water to provide cooling…. not dissimilar to A/C in buildings today. Sometimes it is just a simple fountain or spring, in the middle of a courtyard, with the water evaporating on the hot stone floors.
Please Remember ….
