In fact Granada has everything to offer, from the Alhambra and the Albaicin to the intimate corners of nineteenth
century Romanticism; from the enchatment of Oriental art to the dawn of the Gothic; from the flowering of the Renaissance
to the exuberant brilliance of the Baroque. And if, from the point of view of the Arts, this rich diversity is overwhelming
in its vitality without the dominance of one unilateral theme, Nature for her part provides analagous contrasts. In some places
there is ruggedness, in other a delicacy full of half-tones; here is a city neither of the mountain no of the plain. The Sierra
and the lowland intertwine in a stange arabesque and this gives the landscape both strenth and extraordinary variety. From
the foot of the mountains to their summit there is an ascent of more than three thousand meters and from the region of perpetual
snow it is possible to descend, in barely an hour, to a coast where every tropical fruit abounds. It would be difficult to
find a land richer in variety and contrasts or one evoking emotions of greater depth and diversity.
