Last week’s explanation regarding the coins can be found here, and below you'll find an interior image of the building above.

Thanks for comments and guesses. The explanation for the above pictures can be found here.

I actually knew this one off the top of my head!

That's the Alhambra. It's a palace/fortress built by the Moors when they occupied Spain. It's famous for its beauty and artwork.

Oh! I forgot the main part of the question! Had to look this part up.

Washington Irving once stayed there and wrote a series of short stories titled "Tales of the Alhambra".

Did not know that.

Good learning if they (above me) aqre correct. I went with some aged photos of my immigrant family. It's been a while, hope all is well with you.

Thanks for visiting and guessing....Grift Drift takes the honors this week. The pictures are of the Alhambra in Spain and Washington Irving did indeed reside in the palace for a time while he was researching a book on Christopher Columbus. Irving will be a topic of a post very soon.
