Elvira’s Arch

Calle de Elvira, Granada (Spain)

These days it is hard to imagine that I once lived in the Calle de Elvira, an emblematic street in Granada belonging to the quarter called the Albayzín. From my window I looked out on this beautiful arch, part of the ancient walls around the city, which I did rather often.

When I returned in May, I wanted to say ‘hello’ to my house, but it had been closed down waiting for a big restoration. No wonder, it already was old and nearly falling apart in my time (the 1970s). I still remember the shocked look on my parents’ faces when they came to visit me.

Although a number of things has changed, the street still has its charm, especially in the afternoon light.
