The Alhambra set on the foothills of the in Granada, Spain was so named because of its reddish walls. Translated it mean Red Castle. From its hilltop location you see over the city below and the meadow that lies beyond.
It was not until the 13th century that the first king of the Nasrid dynasty arrived. That event marked a very wonderful period for the Alhambra. The Alhambra which had fallen into disrepair over the centuries was reinforced & water was brought in through canals. The architecture is stunning with numerous water features kept in perfect condition for us to enjoy even today. One fountain is in the Courtyard of the Lions. You can also find that here in my gallery.
