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.
