After the Alhambra, we bussed back to the
old town (Alhambra's up on a big hill) and
took in a few more sights;  in the Isabella
Catolico Plaza, the famous sculpture of
Columbus making his pitch

Over by the cathedral, which we skipped, is the Royal
Chapel, where Ferdinand and Isabella and their immediate
progeny are buried

Famous painting depicting Boabdil's surrender to F and Y

In the chapel, the altar, dedicated to John the Baptist and
John the Evangelist; the beheading scene is unusually

Tombs of Ferdinand and Isabella

Actual coffins of F and Y
