Visit the Alhambra

The Alhambra was termed because of its reddish wall. It is located on the pinnacle of the hill al-Sabika, on the left bank of the river Darro, to the west of the city of Granada. It is also close to the area of the Albaicin and of the Alcazaba. Yusuf I (1333-1353) and Mohammed V (1353-1391) are the mastermind of most of the architecture of the Alhambra that we enjoy today. Since the days of the Catholic Monarchs until now we must not forget that Charles V dictated the demolition of a part of the complex in order to build the palace which bore his inscriptions. We must also mention the building of the Emperor's Chambers (habitaciones del Emperador) and the Queen's Dressing Room (Peinador de la Reina). In 18TH century the Alhambra was abandoned. At a certain time during the French dominated part of the fortress and was later blasted away and it was until the 19th century that there was repairing and restoration of the complex and it was managed until today.
