49 / Patterns At The Alhambra

Yesterday, I visited the Alhambra. When my sister Nancy heard I was planning to go to the Alhambra, she called it the "most beautiful building in the world." While I am doing my best to get around the world, I definitely haven't been to every beautiful building, everywhere (and Nancy, neither). I would have to guess, though, that the Alhambra is going to be at the very top of anyone's list of beautiful places. It truly is spectacular.

Pictured are various patterns in tile that appear in the many rooms of the Nasarid Palaces, the most spectacular part of this most spectacular place.

Within the arena of human creation, the possibilities are unlimited. And the Alhambra pushes those limits!
