Set the anchor tag so that it points to the top of the page. Here's what I have: <a> href="#top" > What's wrong?

I'm in a quiz from Introduction to HTML and CSS. The question: Set the anchor tag so that it points to the top of the page. Here's what I entered: <a> href="#top"> Go back to the top of the page.</a> Why is this answer incorrect?

index.html
<!doctype>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>My trip to Spain</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <img src="images/spain.jpg"alt="A picture of me in Spain">
    <p> Here is a picture of me in Spain last summer! </p>
    <a> href="#top">Go back to the top of the page.</a>

This is what worked for me. It was picky about placement of things. This will work for all parts of the challenge:

<!doctype> <html> <head> <title>My trip to Spain</title> </head> <body>

<img src='images/spain.jpg' alt="A picture of me in Spain">
<p>
Here is a picture of me in Spain last summer!

<a href="#top">Go back to the top of the page.</a>

</p>

</body> </html>
