Dominating the skyline over the Spanish town of Granada in the Andalucía province of Spain, the Alhambra is simply breathtaking and nothing can prepare you for what some have described as the Gardens of Babylon. Intricate Islamic artwork fused with incredible architecture and landscaping has helped this World Heritage Listed site to become one of the must see attractions in Europe (yet so many people still don’t know about it!). Dating back to the 11th century, the site is dominated by the mighty Alcazaba (fortress), whilst the Palacio Nazaries (palace) and tranquil water loving Generalife (Palace Gardens) provides a heavenly hideaway from the Spanish heat. The queues are long and the crowds can be insane at times however it’s worth every bit to visit the Alhambra and it’s easy enough to escape to a corner of the garden for a little reflection of life wandering by. So if you’re considering a stopover on the way through to Seville, I highly recommend you visiting, you won’t be disappointed! I hope you enjoy this weeks photo junket.
