Built in the first half of the 13th century, the Alhambra was a Spanish military site and the home of kings. It is also a stage for the historical changes of Spanish religion. It is a classic example of the integration of Islamic influences into Spanish culture. It mainly consists of the fortress Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces and the Palace of the Generalife, which was the summer palace. The Court of the Lions and the Atrium are also not to be missed.

Welcome to the crown jewel of Granada ✨
From stunning Arabic carvings to brimming gardens overviewing the fascinating city, the Alhambra constantly leaves visitors in awe.
I rarely watch Korean dramas, but I was fascinated by the recommended "Reminiscences of the Alhambra". I rarely fascinated by the drama. The concept of different general game scenes blending into the life of real people is very attractive. I am, but the most important thing is that I like the scenery inside. On the day of May, I went to Spain, and on the seventh day I went to the Alhambra.
The Alhambra is the famous forbidden palace in Spain, the royal palace of the Emir of Granada, established by the medieval Moors in Spain. For the Moors, the essence of all the monuments in Spain, known as the "city of palaces" and "world miracles."
It is not just a palace, but a city. Granada is located in the northern part of Andalusia, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, near a plain of irrigation. The ancient city is situated on three hills, and the Alhambra is located at the highest point on the mountain. The layout of the palace is actually very strict. It is divided into three parts: administrative place, activity ceremonial place, and royal residence. They are independent and subtly connected. In the Alhambra, the most famous is the ambassador hall, two Sisters, lion atriums and large baths.
The fascinating Alhambra
Alhambra is the royal palace of the Granada kingdom established by the medieval Moors in Spain. Arabic means red fort. After the Moors were expelled from Spain, the building began to be abandoned. Later, with the support of Ferdinand VII, the architects Jose Contreras and other long-term repairs and reconstructions restored the original features. We booked tickets for the Nasri Palace at 2 pm (you must make an appointment, otherwise you will be queued at 6 o'clock in the morning, after all, there is a limit for the number of people in each time period). At 12 o'clock, you have already arrived at the scenic spot, thinking about it. Let's go to other free places to see. As a result, neither the Summer Palace nor the Fort Akasaba will be allowed. Only the Carlos V Palace can. So booked 2 tickets, all paid attractions must be 2 o'clock before entering. Although Nasirs Palace, Akasaba Fort and Summer Palace are separate attractions, as long as they meet the visit time, it is completely OK to go out from one toll attraction and then go to another toll attraction. Remember that each toll attraction cannot be used. Going in again, the staff at the door were very careful to check the ticket.
Introduce some personal favorite spots. The design of the palace must first mention: How did the glass not be used in ancient times? The Moors used a very laborious but extravagant way to cut out a honeycomb window! If a person quietly stays in a closed space for a whole day, watching the sun cast the shape of the light hole on a dim roof or wall, moving with the sun's trajectory, it is good to feel the passage of time. Experience. The
myrtle atrium is enclosed by marble columns, with a shallow, flat rectangular reflecting pool and a beautiful central fountain. Two rows of myrtle hedges lined up on the side of the pool, which is also the source of the name of the atrium. The
lion atrium is said to be the place where Alfonso XI and his lover have fun, and she is legendary the most beautiful woman in Spain. From the castle you can look out over the Sierra Nevada. The
Henry Lofer Garden consists of two groups of buildings connected by a canal atrium, all of which are fairly stable, simple and simple. This means that when the king retires, he longs for the garden to provide an intimate and tranquil atmosphere. There are only some decorative patterns of stucco, which are not too exaggerated, but still show exquisiteness and taste. The
summer garden is very beautiful and offers panoramic views of the palace. In addition, it is recommended to go to the Nicholas Lookout to enjoy the palace at sunset, beautiful!
The Alhambra Palace is located in Granada and is a must-see for travel in Spain. I won't say this before I go, but after I finish, I am sure to say: I won't regret it! ! !
After writing the travel notes, many friends have just commented on the "Reminiscences of the Alhambra". Although I have not seen this drama, I must strongly enrich the palace!
Before I went online, I checked the Alhambra. There were very few photos taken. I didn't expect much from this attraction, but it was the most amazing sight in Spain. Ticket prices are also very conscience compared to other palaces and famous attractions.
is also a medieval Islamic building, even for me who have been to India, it was amazing by this palace. Going to Spain strongly recommends that you must go to the sights, it is worth spending a day in it. It can be said that if you have been to the A Palace, then you will go to other palaces to be floating clouds...
