Tales of the Alhambra
« on: January 06, 2012, 10:45:06 AM »
I have noticed that all the souvenir shops sell Tales of the Alhambra by Washington Irving.
Is it worth buying?

The Tales of the Alhambra is a collection of essays and stories about Granada and the Alhambra.

Washington Irving, the author, visited the Alhambra in  the 1830s.

It was through Washington Irving that Granada became well known.

If you are very interested in Granada it is worth reading.

If you prefer you can read it online.
