Arts & Culture
Andalucia’s most precious monument, the Alhambra Palace and gardens. This was the palace-fortress of the Nasrid kings, rulers of the last Spanish Muslim realm. The Alhambra sits on a hill overlooking the city and there are three distinct areas – the Casa Real (Royal Palace or Palacios Nazaries), the palace gardens of the Generalife and finally the Alcazaba. To protect the complex, daily admissions are limited so booking tickets in advance is highly recommended. http://www.alhambra-patronato.es/
