Granada province, Spain

November 21, 2012
The fertile land of southern Spain’s Granada province is shown in this image from the Pleiades satellite acquired on New Year’s Day of 2012. In the lower right, we can see a highway that leads north towards the the provincial capital, Granada. Along that road, the red roof and pool of a motel and campground are visible. Staying in the lower right, what appears to be a large car park is a scrap yard. At the top of the image is Montevive, a hill that had been a site for mining minerals such as strontium.
