Aside from checking out the city of Granada, my mother and I visited the famous Alhambra. From the streets of the Granada it looks practical and blocky, but the only way to appreciate its true beauty is to see it up close first hand. The Alhambra is a detailed elaborate work of architecture. The Alhambra in arabic means “the red fortress”. The palace was constructed in the 14th century by moorish rulers, it was built for its last muslim general.
The Alhambra is filled with carved wooden ceilings, inlaid with ivory and mother of pearl. Surrounded by rose gardens and fountains. To see this palace you have to spend a whole day there walking through the beautiful arches and stone path mazes. Alhambra is really an islamic architectural site to see. Here are my photos of our visit.
