Touring La Alhambra

When visiting Spain, it is essential to visit the Alhambra. This magnificent fortress dates back to the 9th century and has quite an interesting history. It stands on top of a rocky hill, which overlooks the entire city of Granada. It was strategically placed near the banks of a river, surrounded by the forest and mountains. The hike up to the Alhambra was beautiful but steep. It was a Muslim court throughout the 13th century but later was conquered by Catholic Monarchs in 1429. It is now the most visited monument in Spain! It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is beautifully intricate with amazing gardens and fountains. All of the carved ceilings and archways will leave you in constant awe of its boundless beauty. A picture says a thousand words but these photos could never do it justice. You’ll just have to see it for yourself!
