Photographer's Note

I wanted to find the way to Rodriguez Acosta Fundacion but not by the main route that all people go to Alhambra, and of course not by any bus. I chose the side streets. It is a district of Granada called Realejo. This district was the Jewish quarter at the time of the Nasride rule. The Jewish population was once so important that Granada was once known from the Al-Andalus Country under the name of Granada of the jews


The Jewish history of Granada goes back as far as the year 135 although some historians prefer the year 70 when Jewish settlements may first have been present.
The Realejo quarter began to take shape from the year 711 when the muslims came to Granada. Particularly from 912 onwards when Abd ar Rahman III ruled the Jews really prospered in Al-Andalus. They studied Science, commerce and industry and also traded in the cotton and silk trade.

It is very attractive area and a pity I had no more time to explore it. One of many charming streets in Realejo. As you can see, noone was there.
Only at home I noticed the heads on the white wall on the right side.
