Alhambra

Located in Granada, Spain, the Alhambra is a spectacular fortress of Moorish and Christian styles built in AD889. This fortress hosted the royal Nasrid Dynasty until 1492. Alhambra, in Arabic means “the red”, probably derived from the reddish color of the Tapia of which the outer walls were made of. The French King, Charles V fell in love on this castle and built a palace in front of it to admire it's beauty. The Alhambra is a must see in Granada. It is important to mention that the entry tickets sell out very fast and, therefore, the Alhambra is sold out on most of the days of the year. It is recommendable to book in advance.
