The Generalife gardens are stunning even in November. You will definitely want to take a lot of photos of the beautiful fountains and gardens. There are also several good viewpoints of the Alhambra from the gardens as well.

A stunning restful place on earth with an Autumn backdrop of golds, reds and yellows of the Autumn sweet chestnuts against a further backdrop of the snow caped Sierra Nevada mountains, surely the best time o see this world heart age site.

A lovely balance to the Alhambra palace. The gardens are magnificent. And how convenient to have your country home a mere 200 yards from your main residence!
