US First Lady Michelle Obama and her nine-year-old daughter Sasha on Thursday visited Granada, the former seat of Moorish rule in Spain, during the second day of her holiday in the country.
The two had ice cream in the centre of the southern city as dozens of cameramen and local residents looked on before they began their tour of Granada amid temperatures that soared to nearly 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit).
Michelle Obama smiled and waved to the crowd before entering the city's imposing cathedral, which contains the tombs of Spain's king Ferdinand of Aragon and queen Isabella of Castile, the first stop on their tour.
Their visit will also take in the hilltop Albaicin quarter of narrow alleyways and small squares as well the Alhambra fortress-palace, Spain's most-visited tourist attraction, at sunset, the local municipality said.
They are also expected to take in a flamenco performance in one of the city's old taverns.
The Alhambra was once the residence of Moorish kings but it is now one of the world's largest open-air museums of Islamic architecture and a World Heritage Site.
