On Sunday we headed to Alhama de Granada for a walk through the canyon along with nine friends. It was a really lovely day, sunny and warm and the views of the hillsides as we drove there were just beautiful!

We had coffee in the square before starting and as we set off we realised that the Church and the Convent of N. S Del Carmen was open...for a service we thought but no it was for a tour. Apparently it's rarely open so we took the opportunity to have a wee look around.!

 The main body of the church is quite simple with an amazing wooden ceiling and side alters
