(Almost) Wordless Wednesday
In the center of town sits the gigantic Granada Cathedral. Unlike many of the other cathedrals in Spain, it wasn’t constructed until after the last Nasrid (Muslim) Dynasty surrendered to the Christian kingdoms in 1492.
In modern day Granada, it is somewhat awkwardly placed since it is difficult to get a straight on view of the front due to positioning of other buildings that overlap. Out the front entrance is a rather diminutive plaza that hosts both many organized and impromptu gatherings – usually in the evening.
My favorite part of the cathedral, however, is its single bell tower that is set to the left when looking at the entrance. Apparently there were plans for an identical tower on the right, but for whatever reason was never constructed. The single tower gives the cathedral an asymmetrical feel and is my beacon when I need to orient myself when down in the town’s center.
