Red Fortress, Gray Fog

This morning before departing Granada, we took the students to the viewpoint in the plaza of San Nicolás. It's on a hill about the same height as the hill where the Alhambra sits, less than 600 meters as the crow flies across the valley of the River Darro. Any questions about why the sixteenth century conquerers felt so comfortable in the landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area?
