The Alhambra Spain

The Alhambra Spain

the-alhambra-spainIt’s the astonishing decorative detail in this exquisite emir’s palace, fortress and gardens that makes the Alhambra somewhere you should see before you die. Found on a hilltop overlooking the Andalucían city of Granada, the Moorish complex writhes with astonishingly beautiful Islamic design that fills every nook and cranny. Built in the 14th century by the Moorish rulers of southern Spain, the ‘red fortress’ was a place of luxury, art and intellectuals.
