Alhambra

Granada

One of the most important symbols of Muslim rule over the city of Granada is undoubtedly the Alhambra, a monument declared World Heritage by UNESCO.

The Alhambra of Granada

The Moors needed to build a stronghold to protect and guard the city and decided to do it on the ruins of an ancient city called Alcazaba, giving the name of Al - Qal aal - Hmbra to their new fortress, which in Arabic means "fortress red ".

The name is probably inspired by the color of the sun-baked bricks with which the outer walls of the fort were built.

The Alhambra (a name adapted to the Spanish language) was originally a military citadel, but during the reign of Yusuf,

it became a palace rich in marvelous courtyards, fountains and gardens, made even more beautiful by plays of lights and really surprising shadows. The strong contradiction of the Alhambra is striking: to the exterior rigid military construction and to the inside delicate and graceful structure.
