Rising up above Red Hill, the royal city of Alhambra stands proud and eternal. It is one of the most important architectural structures of the Middle Ages and the finest example of Islamic art in the western world.
I arrived there early in the morning to try and avoid the crowds but it was impossible as the palace is a major tourist attraction. I did my best to get a few photos but enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere.
The facade of the Comares Palace. Courtyard of the Mexuar
The Courtyard of the Mexuar
The courtyard of the Myrtles.
Courtyard of the Lions.
After our walk through the palace we ventured out side to the gardens, the Generalife, containing many water features so loved by the Arabs.
So much to see. If you plan to visit set aside at least half a day.
