Exquisite Muslim architecture. Very refined and elegant. Not to miss. It is like a fairy-tale. This is the place to fall in love.

Glad they saved this remenant of the days when europeans were enduring the dark ages and the Moores were enjoying, water, gardens beauty and light. Experiencing Al Hambra makes you wonder why the europeans try to learn much from their culture. The King Charles Castle was a stark contrast to the beautiful airey castle of the sultan.

The first thing to do in Granada. Finish your day by watching the sun set over the Alhambra in the restaurants in the Old Quarter.

If you are in Granada you must see The Alhambra: it's a beautiful leap in the Arabic World:

the architectonic style is unique, the marbles curved so well that they looks soft like embroidered lace; the garden leaves you speechless if you have the fortune to see it in the blooming period!

The landscape is wonderful!

It's easy to see The Alhambra, you can find tickets quite easily and it's not expansive. On the ticket you find the timing for visiting the place: in that way all the visitors are subdivided in order to avoid to many people in the same shift, and this is a great idea if you want to admire The Alhambra is all her beauty!
