Magnificent Granada,Andalusia....by Anita´s Europe Irresistible Link Party:)*

Hello,everyone,all my dear friends!
 It's very exciting to join the Link Party by very special wonderful blogfriend Anita of Castel Crowns & Cottages.

I invite you to a very memorable and absolutely irresitible place..... in Granada,Andalusia.You can ask my WHY?....
 Oh,I have many reasons to tell you why!:)*
 You can feel this atmosphere immediately when the city Granada in drive....



As soon as you drive in,you can smell the Sun and the air of Spain and city Granada...
Puerto de Alvira,welcome.


And all those vibrant colors around you,which makes you so lively:)))*



.....here you live on the street to a full late evening enjoying the life in all the small and simple things!


Balmy nights, delicious food and of course tasteful wine made ​​you travel pefect,guys!:)))*


Passionate flamenco dance takes you to a world full of love and flame!


At once, I walked down the street and saw this shop....
I can't resist it not to share it with you,my dear ladies!:)*


I could not get my eyes off and do not get enough of this particular beautiful wedding and evening dresses.
Pronovias is a family firm that began life in El Suizo,a prestigious Barcelona store that specialised in lace,embroidery and high-quality silk fabrics founded by Alberto Palatchi Bienveniste in 1922.
And today or the day:
50 years after its creation,Pronovias is the worldwide leader of the bridal industry.
Mostly dreamy wedding dress,always devine and inspirational to me...............



These images are from Pronovias website,new collection 2015...


And now I came to the highest point of my story.
ALHAMBRA is a relly special place in the world that invites us feel and reflect....


We made our journey over there one year ago and those time is truly never-to-be-forgotten for me!

(This one image from internet...)


Throughtout its history the Alhambra has experienced many transformations,Granada keeping testimonies of each period.
The decision to build the Palce in th Alhambra symbolized the triumph of Chrisianity over Islam.



All the time you spent in this place drags you along to the distant history,you just kept silence by all these handmade monuments....Not ot describe in any woords!


You can smell the scents of history.....






And irresistible aroma's of all flowers around of you:)*




Isn't it a Paradise on Earth?!....


May be my story is very long,but I have tale you only a very little part of....:)*

Much Love,
Violetta,

VIOLETTA! I came here the very first day of the party and I now realize that I was unable to find your comments link! I just saw it now, and thank you for visiting me to alert me that I had NEVER commented on your beautiful post! But the link for comments now appears, but I know it wasn't there when I first came here....

Oh the places you are speaking of and share in these photos...I have never been here, but my cousin just came back from a tour of Granada! She loved it and encouraged me to go there one day. My travels to Europe have been only to France and Italy, but isn't this link party a great way to incite NEW IDEAS in our minds?

Dear one, this is a passionate and beautiful post, and from the orange trees to the clear skies, to the vibrant colors of the merchants, ANDALUSIA is simply irresistible! Much love and thank you so much! Anita

Gorgeous! With one side of my family being from Spain, I always hold a special place it. Have you seen the On The Road Again: Spain episode on Andalucia? It is amazing. And I have to agree about Pronovias. Actually two of the dresses in my short list are from there. Love their style.

Dear Violetta, thank you for taking me on this beautiful tour--those bridal dresses, the colors, the food! I need to visit Granada and Alhambra! That beautiful image of the oranges made me think of the Sorolla exhibit I just saw last week and the gorgeous orange trees in the gardens of Spain that he painted. Love your last quote :) I'm also part of Anita's party, hope you'll stop by!
