Spring 2012 was my (so far) last visit to the Calar Alto Observatory. This time, however, I first went to nearby Granada, where I gave a presentation on my project and was then able to have helpful discussions with my colleagues there. On the day of arrival, but also in the mornings and evenings on the working days, I took the opportunity to visit the area. The photo above was taken above the Alhambra. At the end of March there was still a lot of snow in the Sierra Nevada, while in Granada you could travel with short things. What impressed me about Granada was how many different architectural styles exist in the city and how quickly you can go from a crowded square to a deserted landscape.
