Monday’s Postcard: Granada, Spain

Posted on 27. Jun, 2011 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, Photo Posts, Spain

The Alhambra is an amazing attraction, to say the least.

Not just for its beauty itself but also because of its location and history. Built to be both a royal residence and a fortress, it is today one of the most important piece of Muslim architecture outside the Middle East. The fine details of the arches, the grandeur of the gardens and the imagination behind every section of the Alhambra are certainly worth the visit, as well as the incredible views on the city of Grenada, the Albayzin and the Sierra Nevadas mountains nearby.

It’s so great, in fact, that it deserved an article of its own.
