Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #126: An Alphabet Challenge–”A”

A is for…


The impressive aqueduct in Segovia, Spain dates from Roman times and has been carefully maintained and restored through the years. It was used up until the mid – 19th century.


One of my best friends did a study abroad here, a charming southern French city known for its fountains, its Gothic cathedral, and being the birthplace of Cezanne.


The Alhambra palace and Generalife gardens are one of the jewels of the Andalucía (another “A” word…) region of southern Spain. Aside from being beautiful, they are very educational about the history of the Moors in Spain.

You can find more things that begin with “A” at the original Lens-Artists challenge.

    Good selection! Seeing your photos reminded me that I have not yet visited Segovia or Granada, I will have to remedy it, but we will have to wait for them to allow us to travel again.

      I loved Segovia so much! I am more partial to smaller towns/cities, though bigger cities like Granada are more spectacular.
