Photo: Exterior View Alhambra Dusk Granada Andalusia Spain

The Alhambra (La Alhambra) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the City of Granada and the exterior is lit up at dusk to show off the Moorish palace and fortress in all its architectural wonder. It was built in the 14th century and is still standing today.

The La Alhambra in the city and province of Granada in Andalusia is one of Spain's most famous tourist attractions today and is a fantastic example of Islamic architecture from the 1300's. There have been some changes to the palace over the years, including some additions from the Christians in the 16th century, and the Palace of Charles V built by Charles V in 1527.

... palace was built towards the end of the Muslim rule in Spain and was a place where both artists and academics could gather as the Christians took over the rule in Granada. The building is comprised of both natural elements and man made ones and is made of red clay, which is where The Alhambra gets its name from. The buildings were originally white in colour as they were painted, but now have been restored to their former red clay so that when people visit they can appreciate what the palace and fortress really used to be like.
