Granada remains one of those magical places in my mind, a place I barely knew but which remains special in my memories. I loved the old colonial architecture and the slightly rugged and real feel of the city.
On my last afternoon there, I timed my visit to the Iglesia la Merced fairly well. I had heard for a small donation one could climb the church bell tower and see the view over the old city. And what a beautiful view it was.
What most connected me with this scene was the beautifully colored streets below advancing to the tree lined horizon. And of course, in the foreground teh rooftop and cupola dome of the baroque church. And all bathed in a great afternoon sunlight.
Every time I look back at this view of the Granada skyline, I want to revisit this beautiful city once more, to capture more of its scenic and color-filled beauty.
