Nice view to the Alhambra. But not on the entrance they permite dogs. There is no seat on the entrance to wait with the dog while my husband went in to see. The Guardian called immediatly the Police when I steped trough the dor!! Not tourist kindly!!

Fine views of the Al Hambra from a place where the tourists don't usually go. Pay parking at the top of the hill in a car park and then a 1km walk up a rough road to the top. Well worth the effort. Silla del Moro itself is only open on Saturdays and Sundays but the view out over Al Hambra and Grenada is superb and well worth the walk.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
