Above the city of Granada stands one of the most superb monuments ever built by man. The Palatine city of the Alhambra was a rich complex built by the Nazrid dynasty, and the last capital of Spain’s Muslim rulers before it was conquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492.
The Alhambra and Generalife complex is a delight to the senses, from its magnificent fortress walls to its delicate interiors,in which the finest artists left their mark on the light and colour of its rooms. But also, there is the scent of the gardens and the sound of running water, which are part of a unique whole that every art-lover must visit at some point in their life.
The Alhambra is a cultural meeting place. It is seen every year by millions of visitors, making it the most visited monument in Spain. The Courtyard of the Lions, the Alcazaba, the Mexuar, the Salón de Comares, the Palace of Charles V… these are just some of the names that will remain engraved upon the minds of each and every person who journeys to the “Red Fortress”.
