Photo: Alhambra Sierra Nevada Mountains City Of Granada Andalusia Spain

The Alhambra, a fabulous example of a Moorish citadel and palace, with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background. This view can be seen from the Mirador de San Nicolas in Albayzin, City of Granada, Andalusia, Spain.

The Alhambra, which is a Moorish citadel and palace, can be seen in this view in front of the glorious snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountain range from Mirador de San Nicolas in the Albayzin district around sunset. The Mirador de San Nicolas is the place to go to get the best view available of the Alhambra. The stunning countryside can be seen for miles around and then right in front of you, the ancient and historic Alhambra. There are some cafes and restaurants you can sit at here to enjoy the view and many tourists come here to soak up the atmosphere and view the famous citadel and palace.

The Alhambra, which means 'the red one', was in the days of the Moorish rulers of Granada, a mighty palace and fortress, occupying a prime location on the top of the hill, which made attacking it difficult as it could be protected from all sides. This is one of Spain's most famous tourist attractions now and draws thousands of visitors a year. ... continue below the picture...

... As well as being an excellent example of Moorish architecture it also contains examples of 16th century Christian architecture as the building was modified later. The Palace of Charles V was built inside the Alhambra in 1527. The entire building is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so it is protected for years to come by the World Heritage Program.

This is all located in the Albayzin district, with the centre of the town rising on a hill opposite the Alhambra, and many tourists come here primarily for the amazing views.
