VISIT THE ALHAMBRA
Discover the magic of la Alhambra
The Alhambra in Arabic is «al-Ħamrā» (اَلْحَمْرَاء, 'the red'), from the full name «al-Qal'a al-hamra» ('red fort'), it a Moorish palace and city located in Granada, Spain.
It is an opulent palace and fortress complex that was the residence of the monarchy and court of the Nasrid Dynasty of Granada. Like other Muslim works of the time, its main appeal not only lies in the interior décor, which is one of the best examples of Moorish art, but in the architecture's seamless integration into the surrounding nature and landscape.
The monumental complex is a walled city (medina quarter) occupying most of the La Sabika hill. Muslim Granada had its own system of walls, so the Alhambra was able to function autonomously from the city and had all the services and necessary for the people living there, such as a royal palace, mosques, schools, workshops, etc.
The Alhambra... much more than culture
The Alhambra is a Monumental Ensemble of Historical-Artistic Monuments created over more than six hundred years by cultures as different as The Muslim, the Renaissance or the Romantic culture. The view of the Gardens of the Alhambra, the sound of the wind blowing through the trees together with the sounds of the water, isolate us from the surrounding noise; and our visit becomes an unforgettable experience.
