Alhambra - Alcazar, Granada: 34 reviews and 63 photos
The oldest part of the Alhambra is the Alcazaba (from al-qasba - Arabic for fortress) was built on the ruins of a 9th century castle. The towers are "Homage", "Broken", "Tower of Arms" and "Watch Tower" and the garden at its south is called "Garden of Wall Tops" or, perhaps more romantically, Garden of Poets. And, speaking of romance... the bell on the Torre de la Vela is rung by those who hope to get the love of their lives.
"Square and crimson towers
Harlequins on stage
Of blue drama whose first performance
Takes places over the green of the leaves.
Alhambra, you who throws them out,
Tighten the bow of the foliage
Against a city of laces
Which is walled by ivy,
Towers of wind and stone
Flying over the landscape!"
