"Al Hambra 2" Alhambra Tip by travelife

Alhambra, Granada: 218 reviews and 443 photos

by travelife

While large parts of the Alcazaba are in ruins, it still stands quite impressive, overlooking Granada, offering fine panoramic views in all directions.
The Alcazaba (also known as the red fort, due to the color of the rock that makes up its walls) is the oldest part of the Alhambra. No doubt a fort was located at this location through much of historic time but the current buildings date back to the 1200's AD. The fort was remodeled by the Moors who added a very long outer wall in which they build the Nasrid Palaces.
