Spain


Alhambra at Granada
Palaces and Gardens



The former Sultan's Residence in Andalusia
It is hard to believe, but from 711 until 1492 the city of Granada was part of the emirate Al-Andalus in the south of Spain. During these almost 800 years twenty three different sultans resided at the Alhambra and made it one of the finest examples of a royal Arab residence in the Middle Ages. The fortress and palace complex as well as the summer residence Generalife are situated on Sabikah-hill and offers picturesque views of the country side.
