Not that in particular, but that is very much what Granada looks like. It's old, the streets are narrow, and there is the colour of the stone that was in the photo you posted.
I have admired the architecture in these cities....Kathmandu (in 1978 before the development and the cars), Prague, Granada and Hanoi.
I was in a restaurant/tapas bar the other day and this Australian couple sits down and it goes like this.
'I'll have a cervesa largo'
'I might have vino tinto'
and then she said something encouraging like
'It'll be right' or
'Are you OK?'
and then there was quiet for a bit
And then he said to me
'Do you mind, Sir, if we look at your English language menu?'
I was graciousness itself.
'Of course you can.'
That was a first for me, being sirred like that.
