Photographer's Note

This is the Cathedral of Granada, also known as the Cathedral of the Incarnation (Catedral de Granada, Catedral de la Anunciaciˇn), it is located in a charming square in the middle of the old part of the town. This part of the city was among my favourites in all my travels. It is surrounded by spice bazaars, wonderful tapas restaurants and flamenco dancers performing in the street. In fact, I very nearly didn't take this shot as I was reluctant to leave my comfy seat where we relaxing at a restaurant to the left of the frame, sipping on cold beers (that's wheatjuice for you, Noel) and munching on seafood tapas.

Upon the overthrow of the Muslim Nasrid Dynasty, construction of the cathedral began in 1492 and over the many centuries had many different architects and accompanying styles. The internal design is quite unusual and majesty of it all left me a little breathless.
