The Alhambra

Perched on the hillside, overlooking the town of Granada in Spain, lies the famous Alhambra. A humble fortress when first constructed in 889AD it has been converted by rulers and royalty over the centuries into a now sprawling complex of buildings creating the palace standing tall today. The wild mix of traditional Islamic architecture, such as the archways and internal courtyards, and the more modern European influences like the alfresco paintings and gardens is something best shared through our photo diary – they do say an image is worth a thousand words don’t they? Enjoy!
