Photo: La Alhambra Granada Andalusia Spain

Standing solid on its narrow plateau fortified on every side, La Alhambra is a monumental complex overlooking the city of Granada in the Andalusia region of Spain.

Construction of La Alhambra, which was originally created for military purposes by the Nasrites, began during the 13th century. La Alhambra was an alcazaba (fortress), a alcazar (palace), and a small medina (city) which overlooked the surrounding countryside and a much smaller city of Granada.

After the founding of the dynasty, a succession of rulers influenced various phases of the reconstruction and additions to La Alhambra. Then in 1492 the Alhambra became a Christian court when the Catholic Monarchs conquered the city of Granada.

The Alhambra (La Alhambra) a moorish citadel and palace designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, backdropped by the snowcapped Sierra Nevada mountain range seen from Mirador de San Nicolas in the Albayzin district at dusk, City of Granada, Province of Granada, Andalusia (Andalucia), Spain, Europe.
