Excerpt from A Summer in Andalucia, Vol. 1 of 2

Here the poet, the painter, and the worshipper of Nature may intoxicate themselves with delight. Vast ranges of mountains, some nearly twelve thousand feet in height, piercing the blue heavens with their eternal snows, impart sublimity to the scenery: rocks capped with ancient watch-towers of legendary renown, city-crested precipices, ra vines, torrents, and cascades, give to it much of the picturesque and romantic; while beauty reigns in the rich valleys and plains, where, beside the vegetation common to the south of Europe, the date-palm, the banana, the sugar - cane, and other tropical plants and shrubs, impart to the province an oriental aspect in harmony with its history, its monuments, and the semi-arabian dress, man ners, and character of its inhabitants.
